Or like the voyeuristic thrill one gets from a good episode of “House Hunters.” We actually get to peek into the homes of Members of Congress--and there’s some pretty nice real estate to drool over. We get to check out the little condo building in Ocean City, Md., where Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) own a couple of units. It’s got a killer view.

And Tybee Island looks pretty good right now (it’s where Georgia Republican Rep. Jack Kingston owns a cottage a scant 900 feet from the beach).

Major property envy.

Elsewhere, there are two handy-dandy guides to following today’s Minnesota and Colorado Republican caucuses.

Our favorite quote in today’s news: “I was the perfect candidate... America had their chance with the perfect candidate.” --Rep. Michele Bachmann, in an interview with Bloomberg TV.
