Pause for just a moment…

So, let’s theorize for the moment. Assume that tomorrow, DC becomes the 51st state in Union. We’re not going to fiat who, and why, or even the hows, just that DC suddenly was granted statehood.

Who would be DC’s first congressperson? And its two senators?

Would the battle look like the mayoral race?

Here’s my bets: Eleanor Holmes Norton would take the slot as the first congresswoman from DC and Linda Cropp and (surprise!) Bill Clinton would be the first two senators from the District. Would Mayor for Life Barry run? Who knows, especially with his tax situation still in limbo.

Your thoughts?
