In the first chapter, Sammy gets dressed while pretending to have a broken arm. A lot of people do that, right? Then she discovers on her way to her big Senate hearing that she accidentally put a sneaker on one foot and a dress shoe on the other. I hate it when that happens! We also learn that she loves talking to telemarketers; in fact, she calls them regularly to discuss her personal life. So do I! Or maybe not. This book would have been a lot better if Sammy resembled a real human being instead of a random collection of supposedly humorous quirks. The book does offer a pretty good sense of what it's like to be an idealistic 20-something staffer on Capitol Hill, and there are a few mildly amusing moments. Unfortunately, it then devolves into a chick lit fantasy in which she (surprise!) ends up with the smart, decent guy who seems annoying at first but is actually a lot better looking once you get to know him blah blah blah...
