Debbie Wasserman Schultz sets off a round of speculation

From AP: "In politics, as elsewhere, it's a sport that's almost as popular as people-watching: Guest-list watching.

"And this week, it's the Jewish community in Washington and beyond that's buzzing over who'll be on the list when Barack and Michelle Obama host the first-ever White House reception marking Jewish Heritage Month.

"The White House won't divulge the guest list for Thursday afternoon's event in the East Room. But those with knowledge of the list say it's an eclectic and interesting one .."

Among those with invites, Broward Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who sponsored the bill that established the month.

"Listen, I've been trying to get the White House to put on this event for five years," she said.
