Well, if you were the President, wouldn't *you* invite Jimmy to come over? :)

Jimmy looks rough in that pic, more like an 80 year old version of him.

This article ..... http://blogs.usatoday.com/entertainment ... house.html
.... speculates that Jimmy and the Prez
were chatting about
Walter Chronkite's memorial service next week
in New York.


"Maybe the two were chatting about Wednesday's memorial service for Walter Cronkite in New York. Obama is going to speak, along with Bill Clinton and several CBS News bigwigs. Buffett is slated to perform, as are Mickey Hart, Michael Feinstein, Wynton Marsalis and the United States Marine Band."
