George Stephanopoulos once occupied one of the most powerful posts in the White House. As a trusted advisor to Bill Clinton, the political whiz kid worked right next to the Oval Office and was a key figure in every major policy discussion. Starting Monday, the 48-year-old will take on a very different assignment. Seated next to co-host Robin Roberts, Stephanopoulos will work behind the anchor desk at ABC's "Good Morning America," charged with delivering both the serious-minded news and the frothier fare that make up the morning television mix. It's an unexpected trajectory for a Rhodes scholar who studied political theology at Oxford -- one that even he says he couldn't have predicted.

What's the hottest ticket in the nation's capital? An engraved invitation to Tuesday's White House state dinner, the first hosted by President Obama. He and the first lady will honor India's prime minister. But in a departure from the traditional venue -- the elegant State Dining Room -- the Obamas will gather with a few hundred VIPs in a huge, heated tent on the South Lawn. The guest list for the black-tie gala remains a closely guarded secret. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, will certainly be there.

Re "In Pursuit of Traditional Power," by Dee Dee Myers, Opinion, June 6: Do I understand the scenario correctly? Hillary Clinton is a person with "old-fashioned" beliefs. The misplacement of her telephone records and her spectacular success in commodities speculation--did these also stem from her concept of "old-fashioned beliefs"? If, as Myers mentions, Mrs. Clinton is running for the Senate in order to distance herself from the president, are her contributors and we supposed to fund her inability to resolve the problems in her life?
