Every four to eight years the District of Columbia and the surrounding region undergo a shift. Energized staffers, fresh off a campaign win for president or Congress, flow into the area as the defeated move on and, often, out. In 2008 the cyclical churn spurred by the Obama administration’s campaign of hope and change coincided with a major boom for D.C.

We talk with Close and White House correspondent Kate Bennett about how politicians and their staff shape the region around us.
