Those campaign ads I was so excited about? Yeah, I think they were intended for the good metro-riding citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia or Maryland, not for D.C. I was really looking forward to a flyer in my mailbox, a knock on the door, or a campaign phone call this weekend … just so I could feel like a *part* of this national craziness. I got nothing. I saw two people holding Hillary Clinton signs on 18th street — that was it. And the Clinton and Obama rallies are all in Va. and Md. too. The Republicans have no use for DC. *Sigh.* The District — the ultimate middle child.
