Oh that

The forum today for Democratic presidential candidates, in Carson City, Nevada? Sen. Barack Obama’s got bigger fish to fry.

Like hanging out with movie stars and raising $1 million.

The New York Times reports that Mr. Obama’s staff expects to raise a cool mil tonight at a fundraiser in Beverly Hills.

The event, organized by DreamWorks co-founders David Geffen, Jeffrey Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg, has apparently drawn the likes of Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Aniston, as well as all the big studio bosses.

However, the Times article quotes one anonymous Hillary supporter as saying he wants to go “kick the tires” on Obama, but doesn’t plan to support him.

That’s Hollywood.
