Standing At The Seat of Power

Apr 16, 2007

Let’s play another quick game of “Where is Brad.”

I got a private tour of the West Wing on Sunday.  I can’t remember ever going on a tour of the White House, although deep in the crevasses of my mind I vaguely remember possibly doing something with my parents once.

I had plenty of expectations about what it would look and feel like – none of them were accurate.  The most inaccurate was the Situation Room which was much smaller than I expected it to be.  The Oval Office was closer to what I thought it would be like, but felt a lot different when I was standing there staring into it.

I recommend every American – regardless of party affiliation – try to visit the White House at least once in their lifetime.  It’s a powerful experience.
