Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon hosted a chat Tuesday on washingtonpost.com. The policy stuff isn't terribly compelling ("Diversity is among our many strengths"), so let's get right to the gossip:
Bethesda, Md.: You were reportedly the basis for the character Naresse Campbell on HBO's "The Wire." Campbell plays a shrewd, calculating politician intent on winning the mayoral seat. Have you seen the show and, if so, what are your thoughts on the character you inspired?
Mayor Sheila Dixon: First of all, I do watch and enjoy The Wire. The fictional City Council President and I have very little in common. One: I'm very focused on results. I'm much less concerned with political ramifications. Two: I don't curse in meetings and while discussing issues.
However, we do have a similar fashion sense. And we are alike in being no-nonsense elected officials.
