I was watching some of The West Wing on DVD, and I was suddenly reminded of the time I crashed a Hillary Rodham Clinton fundraiser with a friend of mine. I was in DC visiting him, and he was interning for a PR firm in DC that had put together this fundraiser at a swanky house in McLean, VA. This was before she had even announced that she was running for senate. She had already left by the time we got there, but my friend talked to his friend at the gate (he was allowed to go), and while he was doing so, pushed me in, and no one noticed.
It was pouring rain. I had some interesting conversations, and ate some soggy barbeque at a really nice house.
Okay, not as exciting as it could have been, but still.
