    That's actually tomorrow, April 21. (Don't do that to me! I have a big deadline coming on April 22, and I just about had heart failure when I first saw your post, before I checked the calendar. )

    Yeah, and this time he'll actually have reason to attend after his absence in 2006

    Is Johnny going there? According to his twitter he went home from LA and didn't mention Washington at all, and plans to work on his show number tomorrow.

    Perhaps only the medalists were invited? There were enough US medalists in Vancouver to fill the East Room, LOL! I'm sure that Evan's Flexjet will be landing in Reagan National Airport soon.

    There are over 220 athletes planning on attending.

    If Johnny chooses not to attend....his loss.

    Perhaps Obama is planning to invite those two to come have a beer with him and Biden and bury the hatchet.

    Happy for Rachael. Obama might just name her as the next Surgeon General.

    Yeah, I´d suppose that Evan must be way too busy because of the SOI and DWTS schedule and practicing.

    I'd say that's great reasoning. I just saw he mentioned on his Facebook that he was not attending. Hopefully he can sleep in today before heading back on SOI.

    I guess that Obama wasn't able to pay his appearance fee? Evan's manager wasn't able to get face time with Rahm Emmanuel beforehand...
