More Press Club Dinner Notes

From the Washington Times:

    This year’s Washington Press Club Foundation Dinner was supposed to be a comedic duel between Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and Rep. John A. Boehner.

    Instead, Tuesday night belonged to the ladies: the new speaker of the House and the reporter who shattered the White House’s glass ceiling.

    The assembled press and guests, 850 strong, oohed over Speaker Nancy Pelosi during her brief remarks, then ahhed when veteran White House reporter Helen Thomas picked up a lifetime achievement honor.

    To be fair, neither Mr. Kennedy or Mr. Boehner did much to win the crowd back.
