Growing up in a capital city, the daughter of two (former) lobbyists, politics run through my veins. I can’t help but love the thrill from election campaigns, helping to elect candidates, and really just participating in the whole process and privilege of Democracy. From admiring the home video of my brother, decked out in his Polo plaid best, leading the State House in the pledge of allegiance at age 9, to representing Trinity as a delegate in Youth Legislature, I have been immersed in political culture from practically birth. So to watch the absolute circus that D.C. has been turned into since we first ever heard the name Obama, it really pains me.

...It’s almost like we’ll make a mockery out of anything as long as we can say that it is in the name of good entertainment.
So tonight, America’s eyes will turn onto all of these women, and what everyone will brand the capital with is just another negative connotation.

What the season does seem to promise is a group of more educated, more mature women. Hopefully the weave pulling will stay in Jersey. If the other Housewives are any indication though, I'm sure we're in for a whole lotta crazy.
If you want to learn a little more about the Housewives before tonight's show, check out The Huffington Post's introduction to the women. Stay tuned. I know I will.
The Real Housewives of D.C. will premiere tonight at 9/8c on Bravo.
