(CNN) – Days before Vice President Joe Biden hits the campaign trail in Ohio on behalf of the Obama re-election effort, the president’s No. 2 will be the headliner at a campaign fundraiser in the swanky Georgetown home of Sen. John Kerry and wife Teresa.
The fundraiser Monday night, which includes a sit-down dinner, is expected to draw upwards of 75 guests, according to an Obama campaign official. Tickets to the exclusive affair begin at $10,000 per couple and go up from there.
Why is it that we seem to hear about private fund raisers for Democrats *way, way* more often than those for Republicans?
Wow, ketchup can sure buy a lot of house.
Rudy – Evidently the Kochs are only inviting billionaires to their fundraising events for Mittens.
Politicians fundraise. The pope wears a funny hat. Bears pewp in the woodz. Stories at 11.
We hear more about fund raisers for Democrats than those for Republicans because Democrat fund raisers include lots of Hollywood celebrities, athletes, authors, professors, extremely rich people and because the money is extremely high which is why Obama has collected more money than any other candidate. Republicans on the other hand are boring, less money is collected and the most Romney got close to a Hollywood celebrity is Jeff Foxworthy who is not known for being in the elite Hollywood gang, he is no headline compared to Oprah, Streisand, Clooney, Tom Hanks.
Waiting for all the right wingers to post snarky comments about Kerry's wealth ... then turn around and say all Dems resent the rich ... can't have it both ways!
Wow....only $10,000 per couple to get in? What a bargain!
And yes, I am being sarcastic when I say that.
Can anyone tell me who can afford "dinners" like this? Here's a hint, it's not us middle class, hard working Americans working from day to day to keep our head's above water. Do you think anyone there will think of us and how they can help us during their dinner? Politicians (Republicans and Democrats) make me sick nowadays.

The 2008 presidential campaign is the first time in recent memory Democrats have outraised Republicans in the presidential race. Republicans have *always* far outpaced Democrats at fund raising because of all of their wealthy conservative donors.
Republicans found this new state of affairs completely unacceptable, so they found a way around campaign financing laws, which gave us the "Citizen's United" ruling. A ruling that makes it legal to bribe politicians.
