“House” actress Lisa Edelstein may think she doesn’t know Washington, but she seems to have the place pinpointed pretty well.

“What’s interesting in D.C. is that these people run the world, but they’re still excited to see somebody on TV. I just find that bizarre,” she told Yeas & Nays. “It’s like a different kind of high school student that goes to D.C. versus that goes to Hollywood, but they are each really ambitiously seeking something out.”

For her inaugural lobbying trip, Edelstein spent Thursday talking to the likes of Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and Rep. Carol Shea-Porter, D-N.H., for the organization Save the Children. She advocated for a program that trains community medical workers for $150 a pop.

“It took me a lot more than that to put myself through college and end up a fake doctor,” Edelstein said.

She also spent time “not arguing” with former Sen. Bill Frist, who serves as chairman of Save the Children’s “Survive to 5″ campaign.

“He really is far more conservative than me, but in a lot of ways we cross paths,” she said. “We talked about the fact that I think we can’t fight AIDS properly in this country until we fight the really idiotic attitudes towards homosexuality,” she said.

How did Frist react?

“He just listened,” Edelstein said.

This may have been Edelstein’s Hill debut, but she’s had memorable moments in Washington before. Since she played an escort on the first season of “The West Wing,” she snagged an invitation to a White House Correspondents dinner.

“When I played the hooker on ‘West Wing’ and we were all invited to the last presidential roast of Clinton’s. I was very popular at that party,” she laughed. “Everybody wanted to talk to the hooker.”

WASHINGTON, DC–(Marketwire – May 6, 2010) –  Actress Lisa Edelstein made a House call to Capitol Hill today to encourage U.S. leaders to make sure lifesaving health care reaches babies and toddlers who need it most in all corners of the world. Nearly 24,000 children under 5 die every day from preventable and treatable causes due to the lack of basic health care. Yet, simple solutions — like antibiotics to treat infection and oral rehydration solutions to treat dehydration — delivered by local health workers could help most of these children survive.

Edelstein, who plays Dr. Cuddy on the Fox Television drama House, came to Washington to help Save the Children and the Ad Council launch a national public service campaign called “See Where the Good Goes.” The multi-media campaign seeks to show Americans that they can have a significant impact on saving and improving the lives of at-risk children and newborns by supporting the delivery of lifesaving health care through local health workers.

Edelstein lends her voice to a campaign radio public service announcement that profiles a local hero and health worker in Ethiopia, and encourages Americans to go to www.GoodGoes.org to find out the many ways they can help the good go further.

Save the Children is the leading independent organization for children in need, with programs in 120 countries, including the United States. We aim to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives by improving their health, education and economic opportunities. In times of acute crisis, we mobilize rapid assistance to help children recover from the effects of war, conflict and natural disasters. Save the Children is made up of 29 member organizations working together worldwide.

thanks House hearts Cuddy

The Fox drama House has got it’s groove back, that’s for sure. After some slow seasons, the twisted hospital series won back our attention with the return of original cast members and provocative storylines that keep us riveted. Of course, the adorable Hugh Laurie as cranky Dr. House helps matters too. Oprah.com talked to Lisa Edelstein, who plays the all-powerful Cuddy, about her will-they-or-won’t-they romance and the role of women in television today.
