Every Tuesday, HOH gets to know a Member of Congress better through a series of five fun questions. This week, we chat with Rep. Lois Capps. The California Democrat tells us she takes her sports cues from Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.).
Q: What team do you think will win the Stanley Cup?
A: My pal Mike Doyle sits next to me on the Energy and Commerce Committee. He says the [Pittsburgh] Penguins will win the cup. I’ll go with him.
Q: If you could have dinner with anyone (aside from your family), who would it be and why?
A: It would have to be the Dalai Lama, again. He’s such an inspirational person.
Q: What’s your favorite drink?
A: Orange Julius, of course, with an umbrella.
Q: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
A: “Lassie Come Home.”
Q: Who’s your best friend in Congress?
A: Cookie and Nicky at the House door. They do such great jobs!
