President Bush isn't the only one making an appearance there today; I'll be around as well, at 1 PM in Congressional Room A (presumably a smaller venue than wherever the president is speaking), at an ISI-sponsored panel on the future of conservatism with Messrs. Poulos and Larison. Presumably I'll be speaking up for, er, modern conservatism against the paleo and po-mo varieties, but you won't know for sure unless you stop by.
