The Respect for Marriage Coalition recently released a TV ad featuring Laura Bush, Colin Powell and Dick Cheney speaking in favor of gay marriage.
Yes, that Laura Bush, Colin Powell and Dick Cheney:

In a press conference today, President Obama made the following comment: "Most people who know me know I'm a pretty friendly guy. And I like a good party."
If you analyze this quote with zero context, you'll probably come to one of two conclusions: A.) The President was doing a dated, mean-spirited impression of Mitt Romney, or B.) He was summarizing the basic theme of every Black Eyed Peas song he's ever heard.
Assuming Obama is being honest and he is not a president who hates a good party (like, say, a President Nixon or a President Grumpy Cat) the question remains, what constitutes a "good party" for President Obama?
* Chips and salsa, paid for with taxes collected from the one percent.
* Plenty of beer, in case he wants to throw an impromptu beer summit.
* Beyonce. She's always invited to his parties.
* Joe Biden is not allowed anywhere near the DJ booth, lest he play Jefferson Starship all night.
* John Boehner is also not allowed. If he didn't let Obama raise the debt ceiling, imagine the fuss he'd make over Obama raising the roof.
All this, of course, presumes President Obama is not referring to a political party. Everyone knows there's no such thing as a good political party.

His team knows the Inauguration is a perfect opportunity to appeal to as many demographics as possible, which would explain the musical performers who were announced today.
But the question remains, who is the Obama administration targeting with each performer? Specifically?

What I like about Barbara Walters is she's not afraid to ask the tough questions, no matter how inane or tree-related they are. She says what we're all thinking but don't say because we're afraid people will think we're dumb.
And one day, when Walters is honored with a lifetime achievement award, this interview in which she calls Chris Christie fat to his face will be the best part of the clip reel.
Skip to 1:50 for the Chris Christie clip. Or just start at the beginning– Barbara Walters asking Hillary Clinton about her hair is equally ridiculous:
