and btw - those parties at the White House? Those are part of his JOB...and one he probably hates. It's an essential part of diplomacy, of networking, of building influence among the powerful and influential (which today includes movie stars as it once included media figures such as Mark Twain or other writers). Such has been a part of the president's job since George Washington held the very first state dinner, the very first time he and those he wanted to befriend went hunting or fishing or simply shared some whiskey with the powerful and influential on the taxpayer dime.
