President Barack Obama will be the first former president to stick around D.C.  since Woodrow Wilson. Wilson retired from the White House with his wife, Edith Wilson, to 2340 S St., NW, in the Embassy Row neighborhood.  

Wilson lived there until his death in 1924. Edith lived there nearly four more decades until she died in 1961, when she gave the home to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. And, Embassy Row, off of Massachusetts Avenue, could very well be where the Obamas decide to live.  

In the Capitol, Women's Living History

First lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden kicked off Women's History Month on Wednesday with a Capitol Hill event in Statuary Hall for the Joining Forces initiative, which works to aid service members and veterans.  

“Just one month?” Obama quipped about women's history. The event honored retired Air Force Brig. Gen. Wilma L. Vaught, who stood and saluted the first lady during her remarks. “Every time I see her, I tell her I want to grow up to be just like her,” Obama said.
