Several years ago, around Halloween, I had the opportunity to ask First Lady Laura Bush if the stories were true about ghosts in the White House? She said, it was not true. She did however indicate, there is a “ghostly” portrait of Abraham Lincoln in the Lincoln Bedroom. The skin tones of the picture are grayish and the eyes of the portrait follow you around the room.
Meanwhile, some in Washington are getting into the spirit of Halloween with political masks of the dearly departed.
