Hilda Solis seems to enjoy post-Cabinet life

A woman we’d swear was Solis was standing outside her Capitol Hill rowhouse wearing workout gear (hitting the gym? on a weeknight? now, that’s a luxury!) and chatting with two gal pals, also in athletic clothes (socializing? on a weeknight? how positively indulgent!). The crew appeared to be having a good time while checking out the exterior of the home and contemplating Solis’s putting it on the market. (Solis’s office thought we must be mistaken, but we’d know our neighbor when we saw her ...)

Solis told Labor Department employees last week in a letter that she planned to “return to the people and places” she loves, which most likely means she’s heading back to her native California, where many expect her to run for the powerful Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

Sounds like she better enjoy that downtime while she can.
