The White House Sleep-over Guest ListMarch 24, 1997
Updated April 17, 1997
Last month, the White House released a list of people who had been overnight guests of the Clintons between 1993 and 1996. These visitors were divided into five categories*, handily accompanied by descriptions in order to illuminate the nature of their relationship with the first family.

Interested in the dates of these visits? So were we, but the administration is keeping its lips zipped. Sleep-over dates are recorded in White House entry logs or "waves" records maintained by the Secret Service. So far, the White House has not been willing to release the full logs, but Ann Miller in the White House Communications Office says that specific requests for individual dates will be honored, "if there's a newsworthy reason. We've answered some and said no to others." Think one up, and make your request at (202) 456-2640.
While you're perusing the list, remember that despite these visitors' close access to the President, and the extensive media attention to their stays at the White House, most of them weren't financial heavy hitters. Our continuing coverage of campaign finance will let you know who really had Clinton's ear (via his pocketbook). Watch for this year's MoJo 400 to find out who the top contributors were.
*Names from two additional
categories, "Chelsea's Friends" (72 guests)
and "Family" (35 guests) -- referring to "relatives of the Clintons
and their accompanying guests" -- were not provided.
