Politico‘s Playbook Cocktail event will be a doozy next week. Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates will be sitting down with Mike Allen to dish on Obama, Biden, and all the rest of those crazy cats at 1600 Pennsylvania. We don’t know if you’ve heard, but Mr. Gates has written a new memwa, DOODY, and he has many unkind words for the current administration’s handling of foreign affairs. You should be there. There is seating and WiFi reserved for press -email here for more info.
