NJ Hosts “Health Care” Policy Breakfast, Sans Secretary Sebelius

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was scheduled to attend NJ‘s policy breakfast “Health Care at a Crossroads” this morning, but had to cancel late yesterday for urgent meetings. Needless to say, the Secretary is busy these days.

“As an organization, we are committed to bringing the biggest decision makers out for these events and will continue to pursue them – with the understanding that their schedules are extremely unpredictable,” NJ‘s David Miller said by email.

But the show must go on… as planned, NJ political analyst Charlie Cook moderated an interesting and insightful discussion between former Reps. Tom Davis (R-VA) and Vic Fazio (D-CA).

Check out NJ‘s website for dets on this event and more information on NJ Group’s Health Care Week.

Fun & Games at Hotline’s Trivia Night

It was all fun and games at last night’s National Journal/The Hotline Trivia event. Using questions devised by Hotline staffers, journos and politicos were put to the test in a Political-Pursuit Jeopardy-style trivia game.

Question categories ranged from TV ads to scandals and family to politics. A few of our favorite questions from the event:

What car did Tom Daschle use in a TV ad for an early Congressional race?

Which politician did not use his dog in TV ads?

Senators Claire McCaskill(D-Mo) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn) were just a few of the guests that packed the space to cheer on their favorite teams. McCaskill (@clairecmc) had to be urged not to Tweet the answers while jokes were cracked about Klobuchar’s responsibility for recounts in the endless Franken/Coleman Senate battle.

In the end, the “Members Only” team (Casey, Brown, Davis and Kirk) walked away victorious.
