Time in DC

I was in DC last week (the week before?) for about 24 hours. When I arrived I realized that I had been there quite a few times - but I had never actually seen any of the landmarks that gives the political heart of America its character. I knew that in order to make my 9:30 flight that I should be at the airport at least 45 minutes before it left. That would give me exactly two hours to check-out, eat breakfast and go on a walkabout if I got out of the room by 6:00 (including travel time to the airport). So I did exactly that. I didn't get to see as much of DC as I wanted to - a few blocks of Capitol Hill - but I did walk away with a really good idea of what makes America tick. And I even felt a little bit patriotic.
