Ok I think I have been reading law books too long, or been stuck downstairs in this office for to long, but I'm not sure what you mean by Rocking The Streets.

I think you need to get out more, walk the streets, protecting the freedom of expression, empowering young people to protect their freedom...

A date? Moi? I'd never be so forward.

Haven't you seen the t-shirts, and other items, being horsetraded in the West Wing?

See this is why I was hesitant to ask that, I don't know if women are ever doing that or not.

There are t-shirts? For what?

Downstairs-

I was being sarcastic - there are t-shirts & other items for...

ta-da!

Rock the Vote!

So, you wanna walk the wild side with me and attend the thing? Watch, Listen, Rock? I have tickets, I have it on good authority the President and First Lady will attend.

I have heard a herd of elephants will be there.

Notsomuch-

Either I'm really out of the loop, or this is something I wasn't meant to know.

I haven't properly rocked since, well undergrad I think.

Does the herd of elephants mean there will be other Republicans there or will you be bringing large circus animals to trample opposition.

Downstairs-

Well, I'm sure they would not be sharing their t-shirts and undies with the opposition.

I have Rocked the Vote for every one of their 15 years -

Tis a bi-partisan organization, to quote - Rock the Vote is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, founded in 1990 in response to a wave of attacks on freedom of speech and artistic expression.

No circus animals, though the place will be full of clowns, from both parties.

Further - Rock the Vote engages youth in the political process by incorporating the entertainment community and youth culture into its activities. From actors to musicians, comedians to athletes, Rock the Vote harnesses cutting-edge trends and pop culture to make political participation cool.

It's the Cool Kids Club for Adults.

You wanna go? It's June 8th.

Notsomuch-

Not to be persnickity but the NAACP and the NRA are both "non-partisan" but we both know they really are.

Whenever that many actors and singers are around usually they find a way to annoy me.

However in the spirit of bi-partisanship I will go with you to the Rock The Vote thing.

You got a list of people who will be there, I'd like to know if I actually know any of them.

Downstairs-

Well, it isn't a secret that the nons tend to lean to the right or the left.

And you don't go to these things to see the actors and musicians pretend that they know all about politics. Well, they know lots about their pet politcal issue, but not the whole realm of politics.

You go to schmooze, to meet and great, to see and be seen, etc., etc.. And then you wheel and deal in the shadows of the room.

Don't worry about knowing people, I can introduce you to whomever you'd like to meet (on either side of the fence).

Notsomuch-

As long as that fact is admitted to, I'm still amazed of people who won't admit things like that.

Ahh the great art of schmoozing, you want to know a secret, I have done it, but I despice the practice. To me it just another symptom of the city, and how nothing ever gets done because people are too busy positioning themselves.

I prefer getting to know people, and trying to solve problems, not just endlessly talking about nothing in particular.

Sorry I'll get off my soapbox now.

Thank you for inviting me and for offering to take me around and meet people, I appreciate it greatly.

Downstairs-

All work and no play makes you a dull boy -

In re the schmooze -

Although the schmooze can be instrumental in positioning oneself career wise {hmm, basement boy, maybe a ladder to the first floor?} it also can serve as a mechanism to discuss issues, to float trial balloons and to gently poke at your allies and foes thoughts and plans,in a very deniable way, so that you can then publicly work together, or against each other, to solve the problems you have "pre-discussed."

So, I'm looking forward to it - I'll see if I can get you a seat in the motorcade.

Notsomuch-

See that's what I missed in college when they had Young Republican parties, instead of talking to people I was drunking, and on one occasion, being called onstage to sing and dance with the entertainment.

Well if I have to learn I guess you would be one hell of a teacher, from what I have heard about you.

Me, in a motorcade, no way, that would be sweet.

Downstairs -

Sorry for the delay in my reply, I was coaching soccer.

Drunking? What's that? snort

When I was a small girl - I wanted to be a teacher, but real life intervened. And I'm sorry to say, you have a hell of a lot to learn about politics.

Motorcades are cool - but we need to have Firsts accept the invite - otherwise we're walking.

Notsomuch-

You coach soccer, who do you coach, relatives or just a team.

My mind moving faster than my fingers, changing my sentance, mid-sentance, and writing the wrong word.

Well my undergrad was in Political Science, but that was theory, no so much with the real life stuff. I will admit I was a bit shy about it, hell still am.

Motorcades look cool, I would love to ride in one, I wouldn't mind being in the back of the police car, as long as it was in the motorcade.

Yes, finishing up some work. I should be leaving in a few minutes.

It's almost midnight, damn I should really put a bigger clock in here.

The only one I have is on my computer and I haven't looked at it in a while.

It's not like I have anything better to do.

-Downstairs

P.S. If you got my e-mail doesn't that mean your still here?

I didn't know you could check your White House e-mail on your phone, of course I have a Sprint phone so I don't have the bells and whistles like other phones do.

Sounds fine to me, you got any suggestions, I don't really know anyplace to go because, well I don't go out much. Someplace I can walk to would be good.

Notsomuch-

I only have the $29.99 plan, plus $15 a month for picture sharing. 300 weekday minutes, unlimited nights and weekends.

Sounds good, I'll just get off at Foggy Bottom on the Orange line, it's the same line I use to go to my apartment out in Arlington so I know where to go.

I think I should spend a weekend just going around on the M, so I know how to get places without staring at the map online for 10 minutes.

I'll meet you there, I assume you'll be there first cause your already out of the White House.

See you in a few.
