Guess who came to dinner on Wednesday night’s gala dinner for President Jiang Zemin of China at the White House? There was, of course, the usual sprinkling of Senators, members of Congress and top government officials. But also represented at the State dinner were corporate CEO’s, notably from the computer and nuclear industries, as well as big-time media moguls and news personalities.

Guest:
