Bastille Day isn’t just for French Americans. It’s for everyone, including Politico‘s  Senior Washington Correspondent Jonathan Allen, who gives the holiday a special personal touch. We asked Allen if he had French roots. So far, he’s remaining quiet on the matter. UPDATE: Ooh la la, Allen speaks: “Not really. I am told I have some ancestry from Alsace-Lorraine, but it would be a small percentage. Was just having a memory of being in Paris on Bastille Day — randomly — in 1992.”
