tonight…

AP: President Barack Obama is slipping into tails and white tie for his first presidential appearance at the annual Gridiron Club dinner in Washington.

The event brings journalists and public figures together for a night of skits that lampoon the capital’s personalities and issues of the day.

Obama skipped the gala during his first two years in office, though he did speak at the dinner in 2006 when he was an Illinois senator.

This is the 126th dinner for the Gridiron, Washington’s oldest and most exclusive organization for journalists. Its motto is “singe but never burn.”

The event is on the record, but the club does not permit television coverage.

    I read Mitch Daniels, possible GOP pres cand. will be there tonight. I’d like to see a photo of the 2 of them together, just for fun, I hear he’s about 5’7″……coming attractions.

      Hey cat48, I live in Indianapolis and have seen Daniels many times. Trust me 5’7″ is a stretch. He’s more like 5’4″ or 5″5″ and looks like he has to buy his clothes in the little boy’s department.

      Boy I’d love to see our President in his white tie and tails.

    Do we know if a video of the event will be available for viewing, tomorrow? I hope.

    I hope our President is particularily pointed in his humor. He won’t, but I’ld approve of him going for the burn.
    I don’t think there is usually video from this event, at least from inside the event. There are generally a few pictures that end up floating around.
