SWEET MUSIC: An extraordinary night of political thinkers, administration insiders, and one world-class virtuoso. Former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, Rep. Barney Frank and White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel gave the opening remarks with Emanuel tipping his hat to the host at The New Republic, saying the magazine would once again be “required reading in the White House.” Yo-Yo Ma and the eclectic Silk Road ensemble kept the audience’s rapt attention prior to a champagne and dessert reception.
