All In the Handshake
As I was leaving the Pentagon City station during my commute home today, I was startled when someone walked up to me cheerfully and shook my hand. He was an older guy, and I vaguely recognized him from somewhere. Turned out, he was none other than Harris Miller, the former tech lobbyist running for the United States Senate! So stunned was I by the surprise encounter, that I watched in a daze as he made his quick introduction and a volunteer handed me some fliers.
And then I spent five minutes thinking about the Senate race and then called a coworker to let her know what just happened.
So it turns out handshakes can be useful in politics.
Just thought I’d let you know.
