The+groundhog+speaks%3A+more+political+gridlock

On Tuesday, Potomac Phil predicted six more months of winter and political gridlock. The taxidermy rodent is a crowd favorite at Dupont Festival’s annual Groundhog Day celebration. But he’s no ordinary critter – he can predict the weather as well as the upcoming political climate.
