How Clooney, celebs mean big bucks for Obama, but not so much for Romney

(CNN) - If you weren't lucky enough to win a seat at the table for dinner tonight with George Clooney and President Barack Obama, fear not. You may still have a chance to party with the president and a celebrity or two in the near future.

Two lucky Obama supporters will join Clooney, the president and 150 other guests who ponied up an estimated $6 million to dine at the movie star's Los Angeles home for a dinner Thursday. The raffle earned the campaign another $9 million, according to the campaign.

    Good, but the Democratic Party needs to do even more to go up against the corporatists masters of the GOP – the 1%.

    I will be extremely happy to see the celebs increase their support to the President after he has announced his support to gay marriage, the way bible believers will show their support to Romney. Can we allow in a freedom country like US, people to enjoy their freedom as it is indicated in the constitution!

    Celebrities by and large are DBs (and part of the loathed 1%). The Democratic Party can have them.

    And REPUBLICANS are the ones who support the rich? Gotta love how the average person has no idea what's going on in our country.

    So, it's $40k per person to attend this little shindig and I wonder how many middle class/blue collar/poor are attending? Oh that's right: They're the hired help. Silly me....

    Yes you will given Obama will be looking for new job after January 20,2013. Have to wait and see how many celebs want to be around Obama then.

    Well, at least we know who the Democratic supporters and donors are and they are not ashamed to admit it.

    You can probably have a list Fed-Ex'ed to you overnight if you attend that dinner and make a donation.

    Seriously, are we all going to ignore that Democrats have more money than Republicans? Even Democrat Senators have more money than Republican Senators. So, Democrats forget that we all know that they have more college degrees than Republicans. Yes, Republicans support the Democrat rich because let's be honest there are not that many rich Republicans.
