Jake Tapper of ABC and his wife were there (my money is on Jake for getting the job as anchoring This Week on ABC now that George has gone to GMA and Jake would be great at it)….former CNN colleagues Wolf Blitzer, Ed Henry, Sam Feist (Sam was a student of mine at Georgetown Law School…he earned an A!).

Gloria BorgerTammy Haddad (who knows everyone in Washington and more….Tammy worked at CNN years ago…and here is more trivia, I was an intern years ago for her date, her husband Ted.)…Betsy Fisher (exec producer of Meet the Press)…. executives from Fox Business Channel.

I don’t get to see everyone!)”
