President-elect Obama is having dinner Tuesday night with a trio of prominent conservative columnists -- David Brooks of The New York Times, George Will of The Washington Post and William Kristol of both the Times and The Weekly Standard.

According to the pool report, Obama went to Will's house in Chevy Chase, Md. Obama was photographed in the house with Kristol and Brooks.

Kenneth Bazinet of the New York Daily News, who was Tuesday's pool reporter, described it as an "unlikely gathering of tight, right suits."

"This is for real, folks," Bazinet added. "The bloggers are going to love this one."
