The Senators and I

It was a love-fest Friday night at Senator Durbin's 10th anniversary celebration at Fultons on the River in Chicago. The mood in the room was one of total satisfaction, as Congressional, Aldermanic and other pols were in the house to pay tribute to Durbin, the 3rd most powerful Democrat in the country. When Obama arrived, it was like a rock star entered the room as we all clamored to get close to him. The jazz band was excellent, the bar was open, and the appetizers weren't too shabby either.
