While the White House won't officially release the guest list for Wednesday night's State Dinner with China until shortly before the event, names of attendees are slowly leaking out. Yeas & Nays received confirmation from his publicist that actor and martial artist Jackie Chan will be in attendance. Rep. Judy Chu, the first Chinese-American elected to Congress, along with Energy Secretary Steven Chu and Commerce Secretary Gary Locke will be on hand. And Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee will be attending together, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Vera Wang, who attended the last State Dinner with China in 1997, seems like an obvious choice for Michelle Obama's dress designer and to snag an invitation, but her people wouldn't say a word Tuesday night. "We're not disclosing anything at this time," Wang's publicist said.
