We popped into Liebermans office about 1PM for passes to Senate and House. Received both and had a nice chat with a young senate office intern.
Headed to Senate first, had to pass through no less than six body scans. Seriously?! Senate floor was slow, Reid at one point had his head on his desk...not kidding. McCain did speak briefly after an hour of waiting for something to happen. These elected officials are given a painstaking job, we need to respect them more.
House was empty, not an elected official there.
But the experience was memorable for many reasons, we were in the very halls were US decisions are made, we met a wonderful Senate page who moonlights as a comedian (congressionalcomedian.com ) and we sat next to Dustin Hoffman in the Senate Gallery :)
