One of my earliest childhood memories involves wearing a Styrofoam parade hat while sitting on top of a large pachyderm in the middle of a large rally. My next earliest childhood memory I was about four years old and my mother was dialing the phone for me (because I wasn't old enough to do it yet), while I made get out the vote phone calls for our local Congressman.
By the time I was twelve I had memorized the Preamble to the Constitution, and could recite all of the signers in alphabetical order. I grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC where we regularly passed the White House or the Capitol Building when we 'went into the city.' l attended a congregation that was the DC home to several elected officials. When I was a senior in high school I did my first Capitol Hill internship. My home teacher in high school was a Congressman, and my Sunday School teacher was a Senator. And by the time I graduated from college I had worked on a Presidential campaign.
In short, I guess you could say politics is in my blood. Being patriotic and feeling passionate about political causes is just who I am. I've never known anything else. Some call it Potomac Fever, others the Political Bug. Me? I just call it life.
