Tracking the White House Correspondents' Dinner Celebrity Guest List

It's that time of year again: the White House Correspondents' Dinner. On April 28, a gaggle of famous and semi-famous faces from all walks of American life (but mainly Washington and Hollywood) will descend on the ballroom at the Washington Hilton for an evening of gentle mockery and press-saluting. In the past, news outlets -- except The New York Times -- have battled to land recognizable names for their tables, and this year has been no exception.
