If by "politicos" you mean Senators and Congressmen then no I don't move in those circles. However I have seen famous people all over the place. I've seen Obama in the flesh twice*. I saw Michelle** and their daughters go into a pizza place*** across the street from my favorite bookstore**** off Dupont Circle. (Total neighborhood lockdown, cops everywhere. I felt sorry for them. Imagine having to go through all that just to have a night out at a pizza joint with your daughters?)
It's that kind of place. When you go out and about here there are so many places where groups of people gather that you're bound to run into celebrities and notables in non-official settings. I saw Sting and his wife at a museum once. Impressive, huh? It happens.
