I have not written about it in detail because it was off the record, but Robert Novak sums up how I spent my evening last Tuesday and the sole reason I was in Washington this past week. The meal was shrimp or chicken (I chose the chicken) with sorbet or chocolate cake (I chose the chocolate cake). The conversation was off the record. The man at the head of the table was Fred Thompson. There were twenty of us total.
Dinner was okay last Tuesday. The conversation was great. The company was fantastic. I’ve never felt so inferior in all my life, but to be surrounded by the people who surrounded me (and have most of them know who I am), I was overwhelmed and very flattered to have been invited.
