CBS Washington bureau chief Chris Isham hosted a cocktail party last evening at the posh 14K as a meet and greet for his new White House and Hill teams and various staffers. Chip Reid and his producer Rob Hendin are new to the White House press corps and Congressional correspondent Nancy Cordes has taken a new beat on the Hill.
Also in attendance: Slate’s John Dickerson, a regular on CBS, Early Show senior producer Kerri Forrest, Bill Plante (a connoisseur who did approve of the wine selection), Wyatt Andrews and Steve Chaggaris.
And some of the flaks: Anthony Coley, Eric Schultz, Antonia Ferrier, Geoff Morrell, Jen Crider, Alex Conant (who just started blogging), Regan Lachapelle and Rodell Mollin.
Also gracing 14K last evening was Dr. Jill Biden. The wife of the Vice President was flanked by Secret Service as she had dinner with a friend.
