Tonight the Bipartisan Policy Center hosts a cocktail reception for their new class of senior fellows at the center on Eye Street. The BPC was recently hailed by NJ as “one of Washington’s most attractive destinations for former lawmakers, Cabinet officials and others.” Now we know why…honored tonight will be Sens. Bob Bennett, Byron Dorgan, Bill Frist and Trent Lott, in addition to General Jim Jones (ret.). Remarks are expected from BPC-co-founder and former Sen. Tom Daschle.
Also on the RSVP list are media bigwigs (some bigger than others and some not so big at all, you decide): John Roberts, FOX, Ed Henry, FNC, Peter Baker, NYT, David Jackson, USA Today, Ron Brownstein, NJ, Aaron Lobel, American Abroad Media, Charlie Cook, NJ, Emily Pierce, Roll Call and former CNNer Kathleen Koch. The BPC recently attracted former MPAA head Dan Glickman, now a BPC Fellow and head of a nutrition & physical activity initiative and former first lady Michelle Obama‘s, Robin Schepper, former executive director of Let’s Move! to join the nutrition project.
