Dear John

Dear John,

I happened to be in Washington D.C. this week, the week you officially became 2nd in line to the Presidency. I even managed to take a picture outside of your office door. The mailman thought it was sweet and moved the flag that was blocking your name out-of-the-way. The young staffer standing right inside your office must not have appreciated my nostalgia when he abruptly shut the door. I don’t know what he was thinking, but he probably shouldn’t be your front man.

I have to tell you though, the town was full of activity. It seemed like everywhere I went there were receptions and parties celebrating the official swearing-in of your newly elected Congressional members on both sides of the aisle. I know you had encouraged them to downplay on the extravagance, but seriously, they worked hard to be there and I get it….having lived through two campaigns myself, a little celebrating should never be out of the question.

I also want to commend you for instituting the first ever reading of our Constitution on the House floor. What a novel idea and something all Americans should do more often. I hope everyone in this country pays attention. I know I will.

Good luck to you Mr. Speaker. So far, you are off to a heroic start.

Sincerely, a Senator’s wife in Oklahoma

I started this blog on a whim thinking it would be fun to write about politics while my husband served in the OK State Senate. Jury's still out on that...but, having a front row seat on the sideline of Oklahoma politics has been one big adventure.

One thought on “Dear John”
