From The New York Times:
BB NOTE: Oh, to be a fly on the wall. Wonder who catered? The photo is of the President-elect arriving at George Will's house in Chevy Chase tonight. There are times when we really miss William F. Buckley and this is one of those times - oh, that he could be at soiree! The wit! To bad they didn't just ring up our reluctant scribe (he doth protest a bit too much we think) - though the furniture might have started flying (or perhaps not). But there would be wit!
WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama spent Tuesday evening at a dinner party with several prominent conservative columnists, including William Kristol (Weekly Standard) and David Brooks of The New York Times, according to an Obama transition pool report.
Mr. Obama, who has been staying at the Hay-Adams Hotel in advance of his inauguration next week, arrived at 9 Grafton Street, an upscale address in Chevy Chase, Md., at 6:34 p.m. The Montgomery County property tax records list this address as the home of the conservative Washington Post columnist George Will, the host of the dinner party. Also attending the party was Charles Krauthammer of The Washington Post. Together, some of the columnists at the dinner party have been some of Mr. Obama’s severest critics.Obama transition officials refused to comment on the dinner, saying that it was off the record.
If we could add one more to the Table at George's House, however, we'd add one of our heroes. Wonder if anyone else was there, or was it indeed Guys Night Out?
