Sargent Shriver still on Washington's A-List





Read and comment on this story from the Washington Times that says that Peace Corps Founding Director Sargent Shriver and his wife, the former Eunice Kennedy are still on the 2003 Washington A List. Every year, the magazine that celebrates Washington's social scene and power elite publishes an A List, compiled in secret committee. This year, 118 members of the Washington establishment make up the list. "There are some life sentences on the A List but there's also the death penalty," Nancy Bagley, editor in chief of Washington Life, tells Inside the Beltway. Read the story at:

The A List

Who's on - or more importantly, who's fallen off - the 2003 Washington A List?

"There are some life sentences on the A List - but there's also the death penalty," Nancy Bagley, editor in chief of Washington Life, tells Inside the Beltway.

Every year, the magazine that celebrates Washington's social scene and power elite publishes an A List, compiled in secret committee. This year, 118 members of the Washington establishment make up the list.

"The usual suspects come off, people leave town," says Miss Bagley. "The Gores [Al and Tipper] are off; they've left town. But also surprising is [New York Times columnist] Maureen Dowd is off the list this year, as is [National Public Radio´s] Cokie Roberts.

"[Public television´s] Jim and Kate Lehrer made the list, as did [ABC´s] George Stephanopoulos and his wife, Alexandra Wentworth. [Washington Redskins owner] Dan Snyder is on ... but a big surprise for me is the committee took the Maleks off," she says, referring to Mr. and Mrs. Frederic Malek, former partner in the Texas Rangers baseball franchise with President Bush.

Leading the list, of course, are Mr. Bush and first lady Laura Bush, Vice President Richard B. Cheney and his wife, Lynne, and National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. The list also includes Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, White House Chief of Staff Andrew H. Card Jr., and their wives.

And, as Miss Bagley puts it, no party in Washington is complete without a Kennedy in the house. Thus the presence of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Ethel Kennedy, and R. Sargent Shriver Jr. and his wife, the former Eunice Kennedy.

Basketball great Michael Jordan and his wife, Juanita, made this year's A team. And last, but never least, at any Washington social function: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and her husband, Bill Clinton.
