Behind the scenes at correspondents' dinner

Hi all,

The annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner is a true who's who. I had the opportunity to attend tonight.

Before the actual dinner they have a cocktail party. And there we had a chance to bump into Chace Crawford from "Gossip Girl," Jon Bon Jovi, Ludacris, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher, Eva Longoria and on and on. Photos

The Washington Hilton was abuzz with so many members of the media and celebrities as well as many politicians and a lot of security.

President Obama's speech was pretty funny. He teased his own Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, even House Minority Leader John Boehner. Watch

Now, it's rude to be blogging too much while sitting here, so much more later!
