Politicians, journalists and celebrities arrived for the 2009 White House Correspondents' Dinner at the Washington Hilton hotel in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, May 9th, 2009.

The celebrity filled crowd posed on the red carpet for photographers and celebrity-watchers alike.

The WHCA represents the White House press corps in its dealings with the administration on coverage-related issues.

A nine-member board of directors, elected by correspondents, addresses access to the chief executive; coverage arrangements; work space arrangements; logistics and costs for press travel to accompany a president on the road.
