Future President Should Live a Little; Try a Pupusa

Looks like DC got it right this time. DC Republicans chose Senator John McCain and the DC Democrats chose Senator Barack Obama during the party primaries in February. And low and behold, those two ended up winning their party's primary and are squaring off this summer and fall. What you don't know is that the real prize is not the Presidency itself. The real prize is being able to live right in downtown, cosmopolitan Washington, DC on a prime piece of real estate, right on the 42 bus line!

Hey Prez, need to shop for new linens? Take the 42 to Gallery Place and walk over to Bed Bath and Beyond. Need a quick bite and got tired of your personal White House Chef? Take the 42 up to Mount Pleasant and grab a pupusa. Want to get a hair cut (sorry McCain)? Why not hop off at the Hair Cuttery. Or splurge at Trim! Secretly hate that Starbucks crap they serve in the West Wing? Let me show you this place called Tryst. Yea, its on the 42. Heard about Secret Safeway? The 42 won't take you to the front door, but it will take you pretty close! We won't even mention the Soviet Safeway. Want to impress the Brazilian, Ethiopian, Indian, Ghanaian, French, or Italian diplomats? Send them on the 42 to Adams Morgan and suggest a place they can get some familiar food.

Look potential President, don't ignore this great city around you for the 4-8 years that you'll be in town. I ride by your house almost every time I get on the 42. Yea, we know you are going to be busy answering 3am phone calls Google-vetting your VP candidates, but don't forget about us, your neighbors. Maybe throw us a bone or two regarding that whole taxation without representation mess too. First coffee at Tryst is on me...
