Radio and television correspondents, celebrities and Washington dignitaries gathered for this annual dinner. Dan Rather presented the organization’s journalism awards to Candy Crowley and Pam Hill. President Clinton spoke humorously about his knee surgery and other Washington topics, saying, “Things have been so slow this year, C-SPAN is showing reruns of the 104th Congress.” The president then turned the podium over to look-alike Darryl Hammond, who spoofs the president on Saturday Night Live. Norm MacDonald poked fun at the president and many of the famous persons present and closed his remarks with his Saturday Night Live parody of former Senator Bob Dole. close
