It's true.Which is fitting, because the Village could give a damn about Obama's opinions. He's just the incoming President, after all. Obama has his priorities straight, it seems he knows just which rings to kiss.
He motorcaded to a house in Maryland this evening, and if the press pool report is accurate, he is breaking bread with William Kristol and David Brooks. (If Brooks and Kristol seem to be unusually briefed about Obama's thinking, you'll know why.)
CBS News's Dan Raviv tells the pool that the house, on Grafton Street in Chevy Chase, belongs to George Will. (Unless he's moved.)
Tomorrow, I hear Obama has another private meeting with non-Republican opinion columnists.
Ellen Moran, the incoming White House communications director, set these meetings up.
Again -- establishment opinion matters to the Obama communications team.
It's going to be a damn shame when these same folks are the ones who will turn on him in less than three months.
