  •  why does federal matter? (0+ / 0-)

    Hate to bring this up, but who says you can't have a federal building in a state (say MD, or a new state of Washington, whichever)?  We have federal buildings (think FBI) all over the country, and the land is classified as federal land.  The current problem with DC is that you have residents on federal land.  So just make the residential land part of a state, and leave the federal land wherever it is.  It doesn't need to look pretty on a map. It doesn't have to be contigous. nothin, just has to not have residents who would need representation.
