50 Politicos to Watch

This Thursday Politico is throwing a private soiree for the 50 people they believe need to be watched. At least one big media mogul will be there among heavies such as lawmakers and bureau chiefs. Surprisingly, she’s not coming for the glory of being on the list — she’s not on it. She’ll be enjoying the crowd and the canapes.

The list includes lawmakers, fundraisers, bloggers, journalists, convention bigwigs and more, but no hints yet as to whose names are on it. We hear a certain White House Press Corps doyenne will attend as will a 2012 challenger with a dream. (Apologies for being ridiculously cryptic…) No crashers. This party at Barcode in downtown D.C. is invite-only.
