For WaPo Big Wigs, A Special Buffet

So…

Each election night at the Washington Post, a big buffet spread is provided to staffers, many of whom stay up late and work hard while the results roll in. It’s not only a tradition, but a fairly democratic one at that: Staffers like the fact that everyone from Don Graham on down gets a plate and waits in line and it can provide for some fun encounters.

But lots of Posties are grumbling about what they saw on Election Night: A separate buffet held in the office of National editor Rajiv Chandrasekaran that struck many as a bit exclusive and elitist. Other seen snacking with Rajiv: Post political editors Tim Curran and Bill Hamilton.
