The news is that Obama may be skipping this year's Gridiron Dinner. That's where president traditionally yuks it up with elite journalists at their annual dinner. Obama would be the first president since Grover Cleveland to not attend the dinner in his first year in office.

This is not going to go well with the Establishment. And you'll remember Newsweek's Fineman this week was already lamenting how the Beltway Establishment is having doubts about Obama. Not the public, mind you. They're giving Obama sky-high approval ratings. But the Establishment isn't so sure.

And for Fineman, that was very, very big news.
