Quoted: Kerry Washington on running for office

(Women's Health)

The DNC speaker and member of the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities notes that while her character on “Scandal” is a politically-connected D.C. crisis management shark, “I certainly don’t have her kind of relationship with the White House” — which, if you’ve seen the show, is good news for the first lady.
