Boehner Not Attending Dinner

The Washington Post's Reliable Source says the House Speaker is not attending the State Dinner in honor of President Hu. "Who's on the guest list for tomorrow's state dinner for Chinese president Hu Jintao? The White House is keeping a tight lid on all details of the black-tie party, but a few names have leaked out. The biggest surprise? Speaker John Boehner has declined -- once again -- to attend a state dinner. Boehner said no thanks to the president's invitation for his previous two state dinners, too. "
