DC Housing for Obama Campaign Needed

Some of you may have seen this diary on the kos rec list, CNN reports Evangelicals for Obama. Now I have seen everything, which is actually soon to be the focus of my job. I'm moving down to D.C. next weekend to help the Obama campaign, and down ticket races, reach out to the under 45 evangelical vote.
It is not just CNN reporting on it, but also today's Seattle Times... Polling suggest the evangelical coalition is breaking away from being built on two issues (abortion and gay-marriage).
Many of you have followed my writings on religion and American. And now I'm headed to DC to help out from late May through early September to work for the campaign. But, am having a terrible time finding housing on the cheap. I'm an Grad student, and am being payed like it, and just cannot afford much.
I thought, well actually another user suggested, somebody here may be willing to help out. If you, or somebody you know, cannot get on the ground for Obama because of work, are a maxed out donor, or are interested in seeing Democrats make inroads into the religious voting block - perhaps this could be a great way to help out.
I can offer a little in rent, and can clean, walk pets, watch kids etc. I'm a Seminarian so am hypothetically pastoral-like, laid back, courteous, etc. I just need a small room - can even get a blow-up mattress to sleep on. It is getting down to crunch time...only found out they were sending me to DC last week...and want to get to work asap. I'm fired up! Think this election is going to fundamentally reshape the electorate, and look forward to being part of it. If your willing to help house a student for a few months to help out the cause this cycle please shoot me an email at BGrant@princeton.edu.
