Read this: Eva Longoria, power broker; Elisabeth Murdoch; Jack Abramoff; Kate Middleton

Other interesting stories in The Washington Post:

Eva Longoria (Mandel Ngan/AFP/Getty Images)
Eva Longoria, political power broker. The former Desperate Housewife was not just another decorative celebvocate hanging around the Obama campaign, but mastermind of a wealthy Latino network that raised $30 million. Now her team is trying to build a new Hispanic political organization that capitalizes on their growing clout, reports Karen Tumulty. (Update: She was also just named a co-chair of the inaugural committee.)

Rupert Murdoch’s parents met when he saw the beautiful debutante’s photo in a magazine and contrived to meet her. Cute story? Well, he was 42; she was 18 — but hey, it was the Roaring ’20s. Dame Elisabeth Mudoch just died at 103 and left behind a fascinating obituary.

Jack Abramoff (Charles Dharapak/AP)
Hmmm, what were Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff talking about over sushi the other day?

In other news: Kate Middleton out of the hospital. John McAfee apprehended in Guatemala. The Senate arranges special screening of “Lincoln.” Terrible public suicide of Serbia’s ambassador to NATO.
