NY POST: Obama Documentary Party Draws a Crowd
By Richard Johnson with Corynne Steindler and Neel Shah
The audience at the screening the other night of the HBO documentary, “By the People: The Election of Barack Obama,” could have been mistaken for a White House staff meeting. Key figures of the campaign, who are now settled into their White House jobs, also came to the after-party at Sutra Lounge, such as the president’s senior speechwriters Jon Favreau and Adam Frankel; Ronnie Cho, now at Homeland Security; and Obama’s personal secretary, Annie Johnson. The 30-somethings partied until closing with the likes of Adrian Grenier, who rejected bottled water to protest the packaging’s environmental impact.
