There had been considerable speculation as to whether Republicans would make a significant appearance at an event populated by members of the Obama administration.
The answer: They were there, but no where at the level of previous years.
Spotted at the pre-parties: Newt Gingrich, Donald Rumsfeld and GOP chairman Michael Steele.
Hollywood stars obviously were the big gets, but so, it seems, were agents. Ari Emanuel was a guest of MSNBC.
Others present: Steven Spielberg, Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore and Dennis Leary.
