Turns out he's an Army Colonel who recently got back
from serving in Iraq and received a purple heart!
Who wouldn't feel honored to raise a glass to that?!
are simply friends we hadn't met yet :)
Hi! My name is Stacey Hall...I’m not-so-secretly in love with my gnome, Sesame Street & getting to know perfect strangers. I recently left the best affair of my life, with Zoo York City, but love being back for this Chicago 2.0 adventure! I have every intention to buy a puppy & a plant when I grow up. Similar to spam (both the canned meat & the junk-mail) this blog serves no meaningful purpose. Welcome:)
NEW YORK – After an afternoon of populism, lunching with small-business owners in New Jersey and gabbing with the opinionated ladies of ABC-TV’s “The View,” President Obama ended his day on Wednesday at separate $30,400-a-person fundraisers here in Manhattan.
The second of the two events was at the Greenwich Village home of Anna Wintour, the celebrity editor-in-chief of the American Vogue magazine who was the inspiration for the imperious fashion editor of the movie “The Devil Wears Prada.” It followed a fundraiser at the top-dollar Four Seasons hotel.
While Mr. Obama was at Ms. Wintour’s place, reporters cooled their heels in a Village bar, the Blue Haven, as Secret Service agents and New York City police kept them and scores of curious New Yorkers at a distance – standard procedure in recent decades as presidents fulfill their fundraiser-in-chief roles.
The president’s appearance earlier on “The View,” the daytime talk show popular especially with women, was taped for broadcast on Thursday. Reporters were allowed to watch on closed-circuit televisions at ABC but were not allowed to divulge the chit-chat between Mr. Obama and the five women, including Barbara Walters and Whoopie Goldberg, who made up the conversation group. One preview: Mr. Obama, striding onstage, first kisses the panel’s resident conservative, Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
