The most Washington moment in ‘Veep’ preview might be a Kennedy Center name-check

The HBO political comedy “Veep” is known for the little ways in which it gets official Washington right.

Late-night dinner for Ruth Bader Ginsburg at Rasika

Hey, isn’t that… Supreme Court Justice and inveterate woman-about-town Ruth Bader Ginsburg, catching a late-night dinner at Rasika in the West End?

Let the armchair casting begin — HBO on Thursday announced plans to make a miniseries about the wild 2016 presidential race. Who will play Hillary Clinton? (cough, Meryl Streep, cough.)

Political scion, college professor, mother of two. Chelsea Clinton is many things. But food photographer she is not.
