Accustomed to generals, country club signs up for Cuccinelli speech
First Gen. David Petraeus, now Virginia Attorney Gen. Ken Cuccinelli.
Cuccinelli (R) has been invited to deliver a speech Wednesday at the 106-year old Washington Golf and Country Club in Arlington. The club's lecture series traditionally draws pretty distinguished folks.
For instance, Petraeus was the invited guest last month, although he canceled at the last minute because his speech happened to fall on the same day that President Obama fired Gen. Stanley McChystal and gave Petraeus command of U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
The club typically invites bold names in government and industry. Another past speaker at the club was White House national security adviser James Jones. Cuccinelli's invite is a sign that the attention-grabing attorney general is continuing to expand his base beyond his traditional grassroots activist supports.
Interested in attending? The speech is closed to the public. Very much closed to the public, in fact. So much so that the club declined to provide a full list of past speakers, noting that the event is open only to members.
