Arne Duncan's Hot Date to the White House Correspondents' Dinner


U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan snagged himself an invitation to the White House Correspondents' Association annual black-tie dinner, on May 9.

His date? CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric.

While many news organizations and reporters want big name celebrities as their guests—in fact, Jon Bon Jovi, Ben Affleck, John Cusack are on the guest list for Saturday night's shindig—it seems Arne is celebrity enough for Katie! After all, he practically opened for Neko Case, and made Rolling Stone's Top 100 people who are changing America.
