Michael Bennet has been sleeping in his mother's Woodley Park house and taking the Metro to a borrowed conference room in the Hart Senate Office Building to meet with staff members, who are also on loan.

He carries a white legal pad on which he has scribbled names, phone numbers and bits of advice, and he panics when he can't locate it.
