Warren Buffett has arrived here in Room 215 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building, ready for his appearance a little later this morning before the Senate Finance Committee.
The hearing isn't scheduled to start for another 35 minutes. Buffett joked that he arrived early because he gets "paid by the hour." He very politely turned down my request to ask him a few questions on camera, saying we'd then have to talk to everyone, but he did say he hopes to makes some news. For the last few minutes he's been chatting with some of his fellow testifiers.
