At a Veterans Day rally on Tuesday, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton called DC voting rights “inevitable” after the results of the most recent election. Due to a higher number of Democrats in the Senate, and the election of Barack Obama to the White House, Norton intends to press for legislation to give DC voting representation in both the House and the Senate as soon as possible. She added that President-elect Obama told her personally that if a DC voting rights bill were passed, he would sign it.
What do you think, DC? Will there be actual representation in Congress after 209 years? Or will the spectre of “Senator Marion Barry” screw it all up?
