Guess Who I Met New Year's Eve?

Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd and his family attended the New Year's Eve Broadway matinee performance of Mary Poppins. I met him as he was being given a backstage tour after the show. He was very friendly and down to earth, and his wife Jackie and their daughters were lovely.

I know that for the most part friendliness is normally the way of politicians in order to secure votes, but I don't live in his state and it felt genuine.  Imagine my surprise when after I thanked him for posing for the photo with me, he replied, "Thank you for asking."
