As I prepare to ditch Washington, DC, things I remember from my 16 years living by the Potomac River.
2000 Super Bowl party at the White House. The former football fan-in-chief was walking around working the room:
PRESIDENT CLINTON: Thank you son for coming to my Super Bowl party.
ME: Thank you sir it's great!
PRESIDENT CLINTON: How do you like it?
ME: [long pause due to brain freeze, stupidity, and confusion] Free suds and pizza, I love it!
PRESIDENT CLINTON: [Awkward silence and walks away]
