Stephanopoulos Dined With Hillary Flack To Celebrate New ABC Contract

Fresh from his recent absurdly obvious public-relations flackery for Senator Hillary and the "dramatic sign" of her declaration that Donald Rumsfeld is incompetent and should resign, The Saturday "Names & Faces" gossip column in The Washington Post reported:

A casually dressed George Stephanopoulos, Hillary Clinton mouthpiece Phillippe Reines, and another pal enjoyed a looong dinner (three hours!) at Cafe Milano on Thursday evening. Stephanopoulos munched on beef carpaccio and an anchovy appetizer between rounds of Moet & Chandon with his buddies. Why all the bubbly? A source says the crew was celebrating the Washington correspondent's decision to extend his contract at ABC, despite serious offers from other networks.

I really do wish Rumsfeld or someone would respond to her charges of incompetence with a strong, if personal retort: "You can't keep your hound dog husband on the porch and you want to tell me I can't get anything done???"
