The list of attendees for tonight’s state dinner has been released. We note that it includes TWS contributing editor, Robert Kagan, author of this week’s cover story arguing for a robust defense budget—in large part to counteract the rise of China.

“Hu, meet Bob Kagan. Bob, meet Hu Jintao.”

Could the Obama administration be signaling—in a subtle way its Chinese guests would appreciate—openness to Kagan’s argument?

Here’s hoping.
