Other fun facts about Condi-to-be Thandie? She played Sally Hemmings to Nick Nolte's Thomas Jefferson, making her the first person to play both the secretary of state and the secretary of state's girlfriend!
Today in Al Kamen's column:
Surely this is the only time anyone has played the roles of both secretary of state and the mistress of the secretary of state, which was Jefferson's job in Paris before he became president.
EDIT: Also, wait a minute, Jefferson's job was what? Where?
UPDATE: Al Kamen issued a sort-of correction to what may have been the most poorly constructed sentence ever to appear in the Post:
Speaking of the Founding Fathers and such, we would like to thank so many Loop Fans, colleagues and general readers for pointing out that, contrary to Friday's column, Thomas Jefferson was of course secretary of state here in the nation's capital, not in Paris.
