I have not been drinking. ;)
For anyone wanting to know more about Buffy (since she’s in the news and maybe soon to be thrown under the bus) she’s engaged.
“ENGAGED: White House Office of Public Engagement Deputy Director Buffy Wicks and FERC policy hand Michael Kadish. Wedding is anticipated to be May 2010. They met on the campaign trail when he attended a “Camp Obama” session that she was leading. Mr. Kadish asked for Ms. Wicks’ hand during a recent trip to Sicily, Italy. While the two were having a romantic picnic, Mr. Kadish popped out the custom made ring and asked for Ms. Wicks to be his wife. After a couple of teary minutes, she gave the affirmative. People throughout the Administration, throughout Missouri, New York and California, and literally spanning the globe are sending best wishes to the couple. Get ready for toasts, parties, roasts, you name it. (hat tip: Debbie Mesloh, Ben Smith)”
Bittersweet engagement right now I’d say.
