I know we have some vocal GOP supporters, please let us know who you support in the comments, but for today I’m interested in registered Democrat voters for the poll. I’m super curious about this because my friends are all over the place on this one and I’m dying to know where you guys stand – Hillary or Bernie?

Personally I don’t understand how somebody so closely identified with a neighborhood could just pick up and move but The Washington Post reports:

“Now, nearly a year after she took over the top post in the District, Mayor Bowser is moving to a bigger home directly east of Rock Creek Park in Colonial Village — a Ward 4 neighborhood in upper Northwest where the colonial-style homes can sell for upward of $1 million.”

Back in August The Post had a great article on her Riggs Park home that was a duplex where the other owners were Colombian refugees.

“Hundreds of Planned Parenthood supporters and staff gathered on Saturday for a Day of Solidarity. Following a moment of silence, Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America spoke to a crowded room at All Souls Church in Columbia Heights, “It’s not enough to denounce the tragedy without also denouncing the poisonous rhetoric that fueled it.

Mrs. Cheney, the daughters, and the grandchildren took an interest in the artistic process and enlivened the numerous sittings at the Cheney home. The artist also relied on images of the vice president when he served from 2001 to 2009 under President George W. Bush. (more…)
