Enchanted, Surprised, Troubled and Humbled at Time & People

Larry Hackett and Sandra Sobieraj Westfall of People Magazine and Time Magazine’s Richard Stengel and Michael Duffy kicked off the WHCA Dinner weekend with a star-studded cocktail at the Hotel St. Regis. Taking a cue from our pal Jeff Zeleny, we’ve decided to summarize the fete in a four-part format.

We were enchanted by Meghan McCain. The Senator’s daughter was warm, friendly and looking fierce…

Surprised to see Jeff Zeleny (our inspiration). We caught up with the NYT WH correspondent for a few laughs and a drink…

Troubled by Kevin Bacon‘s behavior. When the skinny star wasn’t rejecting requests for his picture, he was leaning against the bar in his best ‘too cool for school’ manner…

Humbled by Mark Whitaker and Alexis Gelber. The dynamic duo never ceases to amaze us with their charm, smarts and approachable demeanor…

We also ran into Greta Van Susteren, Chris Matthews, Norah O’Donnell, Savannah Guthrie, Patrick Gavin, Wolf Blitzer, Michael Calderone, Mike Allen, Arianna Huffington and Amy Argetsinger.

Thanks to Politico’s Patrick Gavin who snagged a few minutes with Meghan McCain:
