Well, to my mind the press would like nothing better than to isolate President Bush and deny him the social interaction with his long-time friends. As we well know, the President has few friends in Washington.

I am not going to let the press dictate my attitude, not do I think it should dictate the White House guest list. The list for Clinton was MUCH larger, and most of those people he had never known socially.

I suspect this will be on the news (alphabet networks) tonight and will pass as a tempest in a teapot. I really don't disagree with anything you say about it. It's just when I saw the post I had one of those sinking feelings. It is the press's attempt to draw moral equivalency between the last two administrations. I hate to see that happen because of how cynical that is. My opinion certainly isn't changed by this. I worry some about the casual news listener who may think this is more important than Kerry's absenteeism from the Senate, his multiple positions on an issue, and the like.

As I recall, Clinton averaged more than one fundraiser/Guest per day - and as you said above, he didn't know most of them, and was often out of town (at Fundraisers).
