Washington Dining

There’s lots of speculation around who’s having dinner with who, as reported by Reliable Source:

Barack Obama and John Kerry having dinner Tuesday night at the Four Seasons Hotel. The two senators, both in navy blue suits, spent three congenial hours together. Obama ate hamachi salad and scallops; Kerry had the octopus salad and striped bass.

Mike Bloomberg and Chuck Hagel dining together last night at the Palm. The New York mayor had a New York strip steak, the Nebraska senator had wild halibut, and each polished off a glass of merlot and mixed berries for dessert. They were deep in conversation for two hours; since both are mulling presidential bids, who was courting whom?

The first pair raises questions of whether Kerry will endorse a candidate for 2008. Among the top tier, I doubt Clinton or Edwards would get his endorsement unless their nomination was inevitable, but Kerry did invite Obama to give the keynote address at the 2004 convention…

The second is being discussed as a possible ticket for the Unity ’08 movement. There is a lot of speculation that Bloomberg is the one they are after to top the ticket. If this happens I’ll have to take a much closer look at him, especially if the Democrats are foolish enough to nominate either Clinton or Edwards.
