President Obama is due to get together tomorrow night with Henry Louis Gates and Sgt. James Crowley for their much-anticipated beers and reconciliation meeting at the White House. And so one, naturally, is curious to know: What brand of beer is it that goes down best with diplomacy?

According to White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, who was, of course, asked about what they'd be drinking while traveling on Air Force One Wednesday, the drink orders are basically in place:

The President will drink Bud Light. As I understand it -- I have not heard this, I've read this, so I'll just repeat what I've read, that Professor Gates said he liked Red Stripe, and I believe Sergeant Crowley mentioned to the President that he liked Blue Moon. So we'll have the gamut covered tomorrow afternoon. I think we're still thinking, weather permitting, the picnic table out back.
