WASHINGTON—Chicago mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel and wife Amy Rule partied last Sunday with Hollywood and political stars at the Kuwait Embassy here to benefit the Kuwait-America Foundation, the Washington Post’s Reliable Source column reported on Tuesday.

The column, co-authored by Roxanne Roberts and Amy Argetsinger, reports that the “night’s big draw” was former President Clinton –he was “the last to leave” the dinner–but Emanuel drew a lot of attention.

From the Post: “Chicago’s mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel, officially there as husband of Amy Rule, tried to fly under the radar on this trip back to D.C. (wife and kids still live here until school’s out), and utterly failed. Most of the 144 guests mobbed around to congratulate him on the election; Clinton gave him a big shout-out from the podium.”

Emanuel on Saturday is a guest of the Chicago Sun-Times at the Gridiron Club annual dinner here which President Obama–and a lot other boldface names–will attend.

Among the stars at the Kuwait Embassy, via the Post: Ben Affleck, Michael Douglas, Michael Bolton. The program was co-hosted by MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough of “Morning Joe.” Others: Sen. John McCain and wife Cindy, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
