Obama to dine with House Democrats Wednesday night

There was a bipartisan round of golf on Monday and now President Obama plans to have dinner Wednesday night with top House Democrats.

Obama plans to head back to the Jefferson Hotel -- the site of other recent congressional dinners -- to break bread with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team, the White House announced late Tuesday.

Obama has held three other dinners with lawmakers in recent weeks, but all of them thus far with senators.

Some Democrats have griped that Obama has seemed more interested in socializing with Republicans -- and senators -- than with members of the House.

Here's the full guest list, as provided Tuesday evening by the White House:

  • Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
  • Representative Steny H. Hoyer
  • Representative James E. Clyburn
  • Representative Xavier Becerra
  • Representative Joseph Crowley
  • Representative Chris Van Hollen
  • Representative Rosa L.  DeLauro
  • Representative Robert E. Andrews
  • Representative Steve Israel
  • Representative Mike Thompson
