"Transition 2009," sponsored by Georgetown University and Politico. The
public was invited to the event -- students free of charge and everybody else
for a fee. But at the last minute, Georgetown announced that Plouffe's speech

of American journalists." (Source)
I have to give it to PSBO and his crew -- they steel cajones. How do you justify banning the press from a public event at the National Press Club? Blame it on someone else. Yes, the preferred modis operandi of the liberal elite. Plouffe blamed Georgetown University -- GTU says they were enforcing his wishes.
These next 4 or 8 years are going to be so much fun.
