Politics as usual?

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony took over Washington D.C. on Wednesday.

They joined Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Capitol Hill to discuss education in the Latino community and the college affordability legislation the House will consider this week.

They also hit the Oval Office, where they brought their 1-year-old twins Max and Emme.

"Max was tearing up the White House," Anthony told the Washington Post.

Later, President Barack and Michelle Obama joined Lopez, 40, and Anthony at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's black-tie gala, where Anthony received a lifetime achievement award -- on his 41st birthday.

"I'm telling you, J-Lo, watch out," Obama said from the lectern, teasing her about the Latina Congress members who have a crush on her husband.

Lopez, who recently hosted a dinner for Sonia Sotomayor (the first Hispanic member of the Supreme Court), laughed and patted Anthony.
