Obama Dines at George Will's Home

Tuesday, 13 Jan 2009 08:38 PM

President-elect Barack Obama gathered Tuesday night for dinner with a Who’s Who of conservative American political writers at the home of pundit George Will, according to several reports.

Among those in attendance at the dinner at Will’s Chevy Chase house: David Brooks of the New York Times, Weekly Standard founder William Kristol, and syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer. The Los Angeles Times speculated that Rush Limbaugh himself might be in attendance, but that apparently proved incorrect.

The guests were identified only after an enterprising pool reporter caught a glimpse through one of the windows of Will's home, reportedly valued at $1.9 million, according to The Washington Post.

The Times did suggest that the dinner was arranged by Obama’s chief political strategist, David Axelrod, himself a former Chicago political reporter. The president-elect arrived at Will’s house at about 6:30 p.m.

Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor, spotted at the dinner party by a pool reporter, refused to confirm details, telling Politico.com that the dinner was off the record. In a pool report filed from outside Will’s home, Kenneth R. Bazinet of the New York Daily News wrote, “This is for real, folks. The bloggers are going to love this one.”
