One of the good things about being a media loudmouth is that occasionally you get invited somewhere you actually want to go. This year, I was lucky enough to get an invitation to the White House media holiday party which would have been called a Christmas party if U.S. Grant was still president…

Last year, President and Mrs. Bush hosted their final party, and it was fairly extravagant. This year, the crowd was much smaller and the atmosphere toned down a bit, perhaps because of the government spending controversy and the recession.

My brief meeting with President and Mrs. Obama went well. Even though I have challenged the president on a number of occasions, I believe I have been fair to him. We chatted briefly and he said that I looked to be in better shape than the last time we saw each other. I said that’s because he’s keeping me on my toes.

Michelle Obama, whom I had never met, was stunning. She was warm and kind to my ten-year-old daughter and gracious to me. My quick assessment of her: Strong, charismatic, and beautiful.
