Republicans John Warner, Chuck Hagel, Lindsey Graham to Appear at Bi-Partisan Dinners
Barack Obama will try to begin making good on his pledge to bridge the ideological divide with a series of bi-partisan dinners Monday honoring Vice President-elect Joe Biden, Colin Powell and former rival John McCain. Today, Obama announced that a number of Republicans will help serve as m.c.'s at the events.
Retired Va. Sen. John Warner (R) will introduce Powell at the National Building Museum, with Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) serving as m.c. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will introduce McCain and Gov. Deval Patrick (D-Mass.) will m.c. that dinner at the Washington Hilton. And Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) will introduce Biden and Va. Gov. Tim Kaine (D) will m.c. the event at Union Station.
