POTUS stalking me

I visited DC last week to give a talk on this paper at the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR).  During my brief 36-hour visit, I encountered President Obama not once but twice. My first encounter was when I exited the Metro Center Metro stop to find my hotel.  The intersection was blocked by police.  A few minutes later, Barack drove by:

The next day, I decided to walk past the White House on my way down to the Mall.  And then guess who flew overhead.

Really, Mr. President, I'm impressed and all, but there are other voters you should be working on right now besides me.

My one presidential encounter was at the 1994 NCAA b-ball national championship game (Duke v. Arkansas). Secret Service actually muscled my then girlfriend, now wife, out of the way for Bill Clinton.
