Hey, isn’t that… Amal Clooney, making the rounds of the finer Senate eating establishments Thursday afternoon? The glamorous human rights attorney (and, oh yeah, wife of Capitol Hill regular George Clooney) was spotted at the buffet in the basement of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, then later swinging by the “Senate Chef” cafe in the neighboring Hart Building. (Salad at the buffet, our spy says — you don’t have a figure like that on a diet of Senate bean soup.)

Earlier in the day, she appeared at a news conference at the National Press Club arguing for the release of her imprisoned client, Mohamed Nasheed, the former president of Maldives. Clooney, sans her equally photogenic and socially conscious husband, wore a simple dark pantsuit and a just-regular-people demeanor, our tipster says.
