    Why is the District of Columbia (that just so happens to house our Nation's Capitol *or is it -al?*) not a state? Is it because it's a district?

    yo pallie, i am thinking its because if it was a state, then a govenor would have power over the whitehouse, or some such silly *ss thing like that..

    washington cant be suseptible for state laws that challenge their authority... or something... i dont know...

    sorry.... i'm as much help as a head ache.....

    * hey look... a quarter....a state quarter......!!*
    so does that mean dc doesnt get a state quarter????? guessing not...
