Fortune Magazine Editor-at-Large Richard Siklos profiles Arianna Huffington, catching her in mid-shmooze. From Fortune:

”We are at a party that Rupert Murdoch and his wife, Wendi, are throwing in Manhattan for Jessica Seinfeld, author of a new cookbook, who is there with her husband, Jerry. Huffington works the room with ease, making introductions and connections with nearly everyone who crosses her path. ‘Do you know…?’ ‘Have you met…?’

”Soon enough she is in a tete-a-tete with the host, talking business. The media mogul asks her how the Huffington Post’s web traffic is shaping up. ‘We are getting about three million visitors a month,’ Arianna replies in her familiar Zsa Zsa-like patois. Murdoch nods approvingly, then adds that his MySpace social-networking site is running at close to 70 million.”
