Top Republican Lawmakers Not Invited to Obama's First State Dinner

Apparently Obama is not showing the Bi-Partisan love he promised during his campaign.
According to Fox News and the Washington Times House Minority Leader John A. Boehner and his deputy, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia did not receive invitations.

Sen. John McCain didn't get an invitation either.Some Republicans decided they didn't like the way the dinner was shaping up and declined their invitations. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell received an invitation but decided to skip the dinner. Joe Lieberman an independent senator whose vote could be crucial in the looming health care bill also decided to stay home. It appears even Bill Clinton is opting out of the event.

It looks like Obama has star power on his side though, with such celebs as Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Jeffrey Katzenberg have been rumored to be showing up.
