Hillary Furious at Hollywood

Hillary Clinton was reportedly "furious” at the three Hollywood moguls and Clinton "friends” who hosted Tuesday night’s fund-raiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Three of the entertainment industry’s biggest names – DreamWorks studio founders Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen – hosted the private Beverly Hills fund-raiser for Sen. Obama, and checks from Hollywood’s A-list of stars – including George Clooney, Eddie Murphy and Barbra Streisand – added up to a one-night take of $1 million.

The New York Post, quoting a source, said Sen. Clinton "was furious at the three, who she thought were her friends, for supporting her rival.”

The source said that someone in Clinton’s office even called Geffen.

"They were very angry [the moguls] were holding this event. They calmed down after an assurance was made that there would still be support and money left over for [Clinton].”

A Clinton spokesperson denied that anyone spoke to Geffen. As NewsMax reported on Tuesday, "Obama’s display of celebrity sizzle and campaign dollars challenges any assumptions that Hollywood dollars would default to Sen. Hillary Clinton, who has longstanding ties to the industry, along with her husband.”

In a further slight to Hillary, Geffen told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd that Republicans "believe she's the easiest to defeat."

"It's not a very big thing to say, 'I made a mistake' on the war, and typical of Hillary Clinton that she can't," Dowd quotes Geffen as saying.

When asked if Obama can stand up to "Clinton Inc.," Geffen replied: "I hope so, because that machine is going to be very unpleasant and unattractive and effective."

Read Maureen Dowd's article from today. Geffen really takes some potshots at the Clinton's. I think I read the article in USA Today.

I like the quote that Republicans think she would be the easiest to beat, not the guy with the Muslim name.

Geffen told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd that Republicans "believe she's the easiest to defeat."

I'm always fascinated when libs just seem to KNOW what Republicans think.

I thought Biden was the easiest to defeat.

Hillary I have news for you. You don't have any friends, only associates who want to use you.

Hillary can always let the Hollywood Moguls sleep over at her Chappaqua home and pal around with Slick and his girlfriends.

It ain't the White-house but should be lots of fun.

It is all scripted.

Obama is her greatest gift. Once he sucks all the oxygen out of any Hillary alternatives, the press will start asking him the questions they should be asking him now and he'll fold like a cheap lawnchair. By then, there will be no time for any alternative.

As long as he folds gracefully, he might even get the veep slot or some other high profile appointment as a reward, though I doubt it simply because the beast can take the Obama constituency for granted.

That's the good news. The bad news is that they are falling, yet again, for a shyster, that has yet to do one positive thing in his political career.

I don't know about that. In this past Saturday's Wall Street Journal, the piece indicated that Obama was cleaning up the Hollywood money, that Hildabeast was making more from Wall Street firms and that Edwards was taking in the most money from the trial lawyers and unions.

This points up the thing that I enjoy most regarding the democrat party. The fraternal infighting during the run-up to the primaries. It's rather like watching crocodiles eat their young!

What I don't understand is why everyone is worried about Hillary. Her temper tantrums and her mouth are going to self destruct her the same as Howard Deans mouth did for him.

I can just imagine her flipping out, probably smashing dishes, over-turning tables, saying every anti-semitic slur in existence ala Paul Frey/Dick Morris. She reminds me of that movie the Dead Zone where Martin Sheen plays the candidate, "I will fulfill my destiny! Give your hand or I`ll cut it off!"

I wonder if Obama felt a great sense of accomplishment when he was told something like, "Obama, we want you to run because we think a black has the best chance to win."

Can anyone spell patronize? I would not bring it up but Obama is the epitome of all image and no substance.

Not a chance. Anyway, it's their money and they can do what they want with it - as long as their contributions are legal.

Poor Hillary! There won't be enough money for her - despite the fact she's got campaign contributions up the wazoo. Juvenile sense of entitlement.

Wow, 32 replys and 1,000 views for the post so far. Hildabeast must have a lot of monitors in the Senate basement.

One question to you monitors: Is it really true that you are not allowed to make direct eye contact with Hillary?

Nice. Hillary lives by PC, and may die by PC (knee-jerk liberal support for a "clean" black candidate).

Probably not, but it's a lovely thought.
