Obama State Dinner Guest List?

State dinners are just one of the things that every President does, always has done, and always will do.
The details of the Obamas' first state dinner have been kept tightly under wraps.
Was wondering about the State Dinner guest list, who's in and who's out?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also snagged an invite. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a Republican of Indian descent, will be there. He was invited when President George W. Bush hosted India for a state dinner in 2005 as well. The House Republican leader, Rep. John Boehner, won't be there just two days before Thanksgiving; he'll be home in Ohio. His deputy, Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia, didn't rate an invite, although he was invited to the elaborate welcoming ceremony that afternoon.
