Guest List For the Ritzy Inaugural Parties

Inquiring minds want to know....who got to attend all those ritzy inaugural balls and dinners?

(Actually, not all the balls. One was held only for active service men and women. The soldiers were segregated, however, from the big-bucks donors. Separate parties. On Hardball a few moments ago, Chris Matthews just asked his party correspondent if disabled and wounded Iraq vets were invited to the ball. She said none were sighted. )

Here's who got the very best dinner seats...and why.

And yes...that name in red is, indeed, Pastor Rick Warren of multi-million dollar Purpose-Driven fame. Guess he was purpose-driven in giving $100,000 to George Bush's party coffers. I wonder what purpose....
