He’s blown through a steady succession of head coaches and an ever-rotating cast of high-profile players — but Dan Snyder has been steadfast when it comes to the guests in his owner’s box.

“He is absolutely loyal,” said Andrea Mitchell, a regular in the primo seats, along with her husband, Alan Greenspan, for many years now.

One recent new entry: White House press secretary Jay Carney . Snyder’s only gestures toward Hollywood trendiness came when he brought Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx to the 2006 season opener.

Among those spotted in the box during the game against the Seahawks Sunday, in addition to the usual guests: former senator George Allen (R-Va.) and his wife, Susan, and Fox anchor Bret Baier.

This season is different: Snyder still swears and gets irritated if guests arrive wearing the opponent’s colors. But the mood has lightened considerably with the arrival of RGIII and clinching of the NFC East title. Says Mitchell: “It’s certainly a whole lot more fun to win than lose.”
