Rendell attends fete for British PM


Gov. Rendell was among those toasting the new British Prime Minister on his first official trip to New York City.

Rendell - and NJ Gov. Chris Christie - joined Hollywood celebrities, other politicians and media stars at a dinner last night for David Cameron.

Earlier Cameron, who took office 10 weeks ago, met with President Obama to talk about the war in Afghanistan. He also met with business leaders and planned talks with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The private dinner, on the Upper East Side, was hosted by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

The guest list, provided to The Associated Press, included Whoopi Goldberg, Katie Couric, Diane von Furstenberg, Newt Gingrich, NBA commissioner David J. Stern and News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch.

Guests were to be served grilled lamb chops, string beans and roasted fingerling potatoes and were to watch a private performance by Rufus Wainwright, a Bloomberg aide told the AP.
