interesting because we have been following marco rubio. >> that is why when he comes to washington he should try to keep his head down. he will try to involve the strategy that senator clinton did and senator obama did and that nor al franken followed and that is to not seek the spotlight. they will be able to get that whenever they want it but they want to build relationships with colleagues, do their job. the week after victory night when nor to be rubio had 300 international reporters at his celebration he went to israel to try to get away but the media there followed him and the networks wanted him to do live shots from israel. he said no. that is a sign of him trying to stick to the strategy. >> the point to avoid overexposure probably. in addition to this tactic that you say he shares with obama,
6:48 am
there is other commonalities and that is in this article it talks about how he also sort of carries this burden of carrying the hopes of a minority population. >> right and maybe the hopes of a party. he is one of the best faces for republicans out there, the most famous republican to come to washington in some years. people are already saying he's the near certain vice presidential candidate and would do a lot for them. but one of the exciting parts of freshman week to see the people. we saw them checking into hotels. they get a packet of information and what do you think they get with it? what is the first thing a congressman gets? they get a blackberry. because they have another few weeks before they get on the floor. but they are already wired. >> mike allen, always good to see you. >> thanks, mike. time for traffic and weather every 10 minutes. this morning, a special new

6:50 am
high pressure is trying to clear us out but whatever it does will be brief. low pressure over the gulf coast, very complex system will bring rain our way. will it fall during the redskins dame tonight? it -- game tonight? it is a possibility. a little sunshine after the fog then increasing cloudiness. temps 58 to 62. expect a rainy night and very rainy day tomorrow. let's find out how the fog is affecting commuters with lisa baden with an update. >> it adds some to the travel time. it makes it a little scary, too. you don't know if a deer is ahead or what is ahead of you coming up to an intersection. be careful through the fog. we have plenty of traffic now saturated out of manassas through centreville on 66. on 270 a minor crash after montrose moved on to the shoulder. here we are with the picture of the pace on 270. more to come on "good morning, washington."
