There's a lot more to Inauguration Weekend than waiting for hours in tunnels and getting turned away at Barack Obama's swearing-in ceremony. Some people also build time into their schedules for lobbyist-funded celebrity jizz-fests!
We were lucky enough to partake in both over the past few days. And as much as we know you'd like photos of us in a cold, damp tunnel, we're just going to skip ahead to the celebrity pics, courtesy of the GE/NBC Universal bash at the National Women's Museum and the Illinois State Society Gala at the Renaissance Hotel.
Here's NBC News's Tom Brokaw, clearly a little star-struck to be with such prominent bloggers. He regaled us with delightful conversation for at least 3 seconds before wandering off for more sushi.
Here's ESPN star and Washington Post columnist Michael Wilbon, genuinely pleased to meet a fellow Northwestern alum. Nice guy, and, hey… his home state needs a new governor!
Here's hard-hitting journalist David Gregory, hit hard by one too many Mai Tais.
Celebrity Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco with an excited constituent. Newsom asked us to tell you that he has a Facebook page, and you should add him as a friend because maybe, just maybe, he's definitely running for Governor.
Al Roker was available for small talk about — can you believe it? — the weather, but all Brian Williams wanted to discuss was the Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle Diet.

If you didn't get a chance to see John McCain on Meet the Press, I highly recommend carving out a half hour to watch it now, before you start getting drunk at lunch. It's pretty fascinating. And just full of revelations.
Like, did you know that John McCain is doing well in the polls? Or that Sarah Palin is popular and well-respected? Or that John McCain is going to win next Tuesday?
Help me out here. Who is John McCain trying to delude there?
Tom Brokaw, the voters, or himself?
