    As I was saying before I was interrupted by a new thread – Bernie is a guest of CBS

    Please forgive my ignorance on names, but VP Biden is speaking to the reporter and his wife who were freed from the prison in Iran and returned to the U.S.

    Is this on the whitehouse website? The cspan commentary is awful – continually referring to “Obama”

        Thanks Ms Chips – major improvement on c-span.

        I did hear that the NY Times does not attend – think they are above mixing with politicians – wonder if that will change with the new arrival at the White House – or maybe they’ll just sink into bankruptcy.

    This is bittersweet. I’m trying not to become nostalgic, but, I’m remembering all of the Part 2, 3, 4,…, that we’ve been a part of, thank you Chips ❤

    Some of these reporters and crowd fillers have the most awful table manners. Ugh. Ha!

    Well howza, yowza all you Os! What a great getting up day down by the old TOD stream. Got on my special ordered WHCD evening gown, complete with rhinestones, sequins, and glitter. Wearing 5 inch strapless stilettos with diamonds in the soles of the shoes. Of course, I’ve topped it off with my signature boa with feathers a-plenty. It’s my look for the finale and I plan to go out in style. However, I have to admit FLOTUS has me beat, hands down.

    Hi everybody,
    whew! got here in time for PBO and Larry Wilmore. On this hot ass weekend my air conditioner stopped working properly (always on a weekend!); took two trips to get a fan that worked properly and for the most part it is simply circulating hot air (much like most of the people at this dinner).

    Michelle is stunning and fashion forward.

      They showed an earlier interview with him via C-SPAN, and he mentioned part of his thoughts about his appearance at the dinner was this important time in history – he says he’s the same age as President Obama, and brought his mother and father to the dinner with him. He’s a professional, so he’ll make it through, but I hope he isn’t overthinking it!!!

    Bill Nye Science Guy looks like he’s trying to find his table. That can’t be good. 🙂

    There’ll be no sneaking around behind the curtains for me tonight. I think the O Sistahs oughta sit right up there on the dais and sip a little of the bubbly with POTUS/FLOTUS. We should hose down the naughty mat and present it in 50 shades of grey wrapping paper as a parting gift. Who knows, we could even tell a joke or two.
