Stengel, Ratnesar and Isaacson.

Former chief counsel to President Obama Greg Craig made one of his first public appearances, since his announced departure, last night at a book party for Time‘s Romesh Ratnesar.

The Aspen Institute’s Walter Isaacson and his wife Cathy Isaacson threw the mag’s deputy managing editor at a party at their home to toast “Tear Down This Wall.”

Isaacson had big news of his own to celebrate– he was named by Obama to chair the Broadcast Board of Governors.

In attendance: Time managing editor Rick Stengel, Mark Whitaker, Ben Bradlee, Sally Quinn, Michelle Jaconi, Sam Feist and Tammy Haddad.
