Many thanks to Ambassador Lucky Roosevelt, Chairperson of Blair House Restoration Committee and the former and longest-serving Chief of Protocol for the United States, for inviting me to a terrific semi-annual Blair House “thank you reception” for donors.
The event featured Jill Biden and drew many of DC’s elites, particularly from earlier generations. I loved it.
I’ll be posting some pictures I took there in the coming days — but I wanted to post this one today of an Alexander Hamilton bust and myself. I have tremendous admiration for what Hamilton achieved in his time. Jefferson’s bust was just further down the shelf — but I couldn’t get that old jingle out of my head, “Washington reigned, Hamilton ruled, and Jefferson complained.”
