Fran’s fu­ture

The Washington Times Weekly - - National -

Speak­ing of seek­ing higher of­fice, don’t be sur­prised if Hol­ly­wood ac­tress Fran Drescher, who grew up in Queens, N.Y., throws her hat into the con­gres­sional ring in 2008 or 2010 to rep­re­sent New York. And yes, as a Demo­crat (fig­ur­ing she made fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions to this year’s re-elec­tion cam­paigns of New York Sen. Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton and Rhode Is­land Rep. Pa­trick J. Kennedy).

Best known for her TV role as “The Nanny,” Miss Drescher, a can­cer sur­vivor, al­ready spends a good deal of time on Capi­tol Hill lob­by­ing on be­half of can­cer re­search.

She at­tended the Dec. 3 29th an­nual Kennedy Cen­ter Hon­ors, Capi­tol File mag­a­zine’s first birth­day bash on Nov. 30 at the Smith­so­nian Amer­i­can Art Mu­seum, and private gath­er­ings at Kin­caid’s and Teatro Goldoni, where the ac­tress and chef Fabrizio Aielli cre­ated a spe­cial pasta dish for her ta­ble.
