On the red carpet: Singer-songwriter and country music star Sara Evans, who was scheduled to give an exclusive performance. The whole McCain family, especially Meghan McCain, made small talk with the media. "You know I love Bill O'Reilly and I broke up with a boyfriend over his show; he knows that." She is one of the new conservatives among MSNBC's contributors, and a columnist for the Daily Beast.
Ross "The Intern" Mathews of the E Network, interviewed the guests, and praised my funny photo of him and Sen. McCain cheesing it big.
"I'm a political junkie, I treat it like the Oscars meets Homecoming Court, but all out in the public for everyone to see the voting," Mathews told Nikki Schwab of the Washington Examiner.
XM satellite radio starlight Mark Daley, who is part of the Got your 6 Campaign, was pacing around the red carpet. And a last-minute arrival, after most of the media had left: Bill O'Reilly himself hurriedly walked in, and took a picture with ABC Action News' Linda Hurtado.
The exclusive event put the spotlight on the Got your 6 campaign, which works with a plethora of nonprofits dedicated to supporting veterans and their families in every aspect of their lives. Lifetime's "Your Life. Your Time. Your Vote" encourages women to become leaders in the community — and to not forget to vote for the "right" candidate.
