Obama's Cocktail Party

As part of a continued effort to secure passage of his stimulus package, President Obama has extended an invite for a cocktail reception at the White House to twelve representatives (six from each party) and ten senators (five from each party). The party at 7:30 tonight happened just after the House approved the president's $825 billion stimulus package. The guest list included Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Rep. John Boehner, Rep. Eric Cantor, Sen. Harry Reid, and Sen. John Thune.
