Kate Walsh To Attend Obama Inauguration

Kate Walsh To Attend Obama Inauguration

Kate Walsh meets up with a few pals at a restaurant in West Hollywood on Monday (January 12).

For an entire year, the 41-year-old Private Practice actress campaigned across the country for President-elect Barack Obama but had a very tough time getting tickets to his inauguration.

“I talked to the woman today, and she’s like, ‘We’re going to let you know in four to six weeks,’ ” Kate joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in November, “I’m like, ‘Isn’t that pretty much the inauguration?’ I think I’ll be on the outside of the inauguration door window with my nose pressed up against the glass.”

Kate will be at the Capitol Hill inauguration on Tuesday (January 20) but got her tickets like most everyone else – through one of her state’s senators, Dianne Feinstein.

    I’m soo jealous that Kate is going to the inauguration. But she deservies it unlike J.Lo (Heres the story so you guys can see what I’m talking about: ). I’m willing to ditch school to go to his inauguration but I have finals on that day and I live in So.Cal (Southern California) and I don’t have the money for hotel and plane tickets.
