My Crush, With Eyeliner

I've written before about the "professional crush" I have on Michelle Rhee, the Chancellor (superintendent) of the Washington, DC Public Schools. Well, now it's gotta stay professional:

Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson has gotten engaged to Washington, D.C., schools chancellor Michelle Rhee.

Wow! I had no idea that those two were an item.

I didn't either, but in retrospect, duh.

A year and a half ago, at the CEAFU conference, she was one of the speakers. When I talked to her and told her I was from Sacramento, she told me what good friends she was with Johnson and that I should vote for him for mayor (the election was pending). I didn't have the heart to tell her that I live in a *suburb* of Sacramento, and we have our own mayor.

Talk about a long-distance romance. I wonder how they got together and then dated enough to decide to get engaged?
