[JobHuntFilter] How can a recent college-grad, currently interning, find an entry-level job in D.C./NoVA? (more inside)

So I graduated in May, came out to DC, did an (unpaid) Capitol Hill internship, am now in the final half of a (paid) internship with a consulting firm. I'm looking for work in politics generally, media/communications/PR, or perhaps even fundraising. I'm pretty flexible. I've been living on Craigslist, MediaBistro, the Tom Manatos Job List, the Brad Traverse Group, Politico Jobs, Roll Call Jobs, Hill Zoo, the Scott Baker job list, the WaPo classifieds...IT NEVER ENDS, and yet I never seem to find something that is (a) an entry-level position vaguely in my field of interests and (b) the kind of place that hires Democrats. [I can do non-partisan or bi-partisan work, but this is DC, and it feels like tons and tons of job openings are for Repub groups and members of Congress.]

Where should my motorcycle and I go?

Oh hell yeah, I got a motorcycle! I live in DC, and even though I can get anywhere I need to go on the metro + bicycle I'm going to use it to commute. Because that's awesome. But, what kinds of things can I do that I couldn't before? I've always lamented lack of access to a car (zipcars are expensive) and I love taking motorcycle trips, so what are some of your must-see destinations in the DC area (within 200 miles)?

Help me develop eyes in the back of my head.

How do I guard myself against purse snatchers? I've lived in the suburbs all my life, and am used to strolling down the sidewalk in oblivion, my purse strung loosely over my shoulder. Now, it looks like I will be moving to either the DC area or San Francisco for my job. For those of you that live in a big city, what tips and tricks do you use to protect your belongings? Are some styles of purses less attractive to thieves than others? Should I use a messenger bag instead? When it's raining/snowing, how do you handle the challenge of protecting yourself from both the elements and purse snatchers?
