George Clooney’s Dinner With Obama Raises 15 Million

President Obama’s re-election campaign was the talk of the town in Hollywood last night, at a dinner hosted by George Clooney at his Los Angeles home.  The fundraiser raised $15 million dollars.

150 celebrities and VIPs were in attendance  at the dinner, which cost them $40,000 to attend in an effort to help Barack Obama get re-elected this coming November.

Superstars on hand included Barbra Streisand, Robert Downey Jr., Tobey Maguire, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, Salma Hayek and Jack Black.

The dinner itself raised $6 million  while separate online donations brought in $9 million, a new record for a Presidential fund raiser.

Speaking at the event, Barack Obama told the crowd,  “We raised a lot of money because everybody loves George. They like me, they love him. And rightfully so.”

Though a lot of the Los Angeles community supports Barack Obama, many have been harsh on Clooney for the $15 million dollar fund raiser, wondering why these high rolling VIP residents have never held anything similar to help raise money for Los Angeles schools and libraries.
