The President and Mrs. Bush may have been the main attraction in Washington, D.C., Saturday night at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, but they couldn't hold a candle to the star power pumping from nearby tables.

Honestly, the Commander-in-Chief was upstaged by none other than the Jonas Brothers!

In a room filled with the Washington and Hollywood elites, the buzz from the Jonas Brothers' table stood out. Even fellow diner, Martha Stewart, seated across the table, got caught up in the frenzy and snapped a few pics. Of the boys. Not the Prez.

"You boys are so popular," she squealed, camera clicking.

Of course, we were there to capture all the excitement for you, and E! News couldn't help but tell Martha she seemed like the most unlikely Jonas Brothers fan.

"Oh, yes," she said enthusiastically. "I'm a very big fan!"

We dashed off just then, as newly engaged Ashlee Simpson whizzed by, clutching fiance Pete Wentz. She thanked us for congratulating her on her engagement. No, no wedding date yet, she said. And yes, we did ask her about those pesky pregnancy rumors!

"No, no, no," she said. "I can't comment on that!"

Sounds suspicious, Ashlee. Especially since she declined all wine, and skipped the caffeine-laden coffee, too! But then, there was the dress--very fitted, no baby bulge in sight!

At another table, West Wing star Rob Lowe actually blushed—we swear—when an overly adoring female fan cut off his conversation with a prominent U.S. senator to exclaim, "Oh you are hot! I just have to tell you, very hot!"

Meanwhile, Jennifer Garner sat at a table quietly eating dinner while hubby Ben Affleck nodded enthusiastically at offers to get more involved in politics.

"Yes, I'll think about that idea," he said. "Sounds very interesting."

If Reagan went from Bedtime for Bonzo to the White House, what's wrong with jumping from Gigli to the oval office? President Affleck... Has a ring to it... Wonder if Jenny McCarthy and Pam Anderson, also swirling the room, could lobby for cabinet positions?
