Come Jan­uary, the bal­ance of po­lit­i­cal power will shift Capi­tol Hill promi­nently to the left. And on hand to salute the slide will be Hol­ly­wood’s Creative Coali­tion, which ev­ery year holds an an­nual “bi­par­ti­san” trib­ute — “with a Hol­ly­wood punch” — to the in­com­ing pow­ers-to-be.

Inside the Belt­way has learned that Hol­ly­wood hosts of the Creative Coali­tion’s Jan. 31 Salute to the 110th Congress will be ac­tors Heather Gra­ham, Brid­get Moy­na­han, Alan Cum­ming and Rachel Shelley, as well as Creative Coali­tion co-pres­i­dents Joe Pan­to­liano and Tony Gold­wyn.

As for the hon­ored, in­vited guests can plan on min­gling with, among other law­mak­ers, Demo­cratic Sens. Max Bau­cus of Mon­tana, Mary L. Lan­drieu of Louisiana, Blanche Lin­coln of Arkansas; Demo­cratic Reps. Henry A. Wax­man of Cal­i­for­nia, Mark Udall of Colorado, Nick J. Ra­hall II of West Vir­ginia, and Ed Pas­tor of Ari­zona; and Repub­li­can Reps. Mary Bono of Cal­i­for­nia and Tom Feeney of Florida.

John McCaslin, whose col­umn is na­tion­ally syn­di­cated, can be reached at 202/636-3284 or jm­c­caslin@wash­ing­ton­times.com.
