If anyone saw Rove Live, Robin Williams was asked what he thought about the 
PM being there.  He said he didn't know he was, but if he had he would have 
blah blah blah...  Rove said Howard was staying in Blair house, which Robin 
replied was the White House Guest House and not that complimentary. Went on 
with a Blair Witch joke.  Robin said: The Real friends stay in the Lincoln 
Bedroom *in* the White House [Blair House isn't on the White House 
grounds].  In fact Lincoln Bedroom stories are rife in the District [that's 
what locals call Washington DC - hence the name of the TV program about DC 
cops].  The political paybacks for the big contributors is that they get a 
night in the LB.
