Obamas to host black tie dinner, their first, on Sunday

Well, we will now have some elegant action. No one can say the Bush years were boring, but as far as entertaining they were like two old people. They only had 8 State Dinners in 8 years, and Bush was known to run to Camp David practically every weekend.

Now, we have a young vibrant couple in the White House. Let the entertainment, begin!!

President Obama and First Lady Michelle will give the first glimpse of their entertaining style Sunday night when they host a black-tie White House dinner for the National Governors Association.

The East Wing, run by the First Lady has been working on the details of the dinner for several weeks.

It is the debut for White House Social Secretary Desiree Rogers, the Chicago executive and friend of both the President and First Lady.

"The White House is the place where our bond as Americans is strengthened," said Rogers in a statement. "We look forward to welcoming the nation's governors to celebrate our democratic ideals, our diversity, our shared values and the best of the American spirit."

The evening will feature performances by the Marine Corps band and Earth Wind and Fire, the jazz and rhythm and blues group from the 1970s with Chicago roots.
