Posted on 02/21/2007 2:34:50 PM PST by InvisibleChurch
Hillary Clinton was reportedly "furious at the three Hollywood moguls and Clinton "friends who hosted Tuesday nights fund-raiser for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Three of the entertainment industrys 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 Hollywoods 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 Clintons 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, "Obamas 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."

Hitlery might end up in a straight jacket.
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!"
At least that will be something straight associated with her...
"DreamWorks studio founders Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen hosted the private Beverly Hills fund-raiser for Sen. Obama..."
Perhaps three more future victims of "Hillarycide"?
Barbara Striesand as well! I mean how the hell did that happen? I thought Babs was surgically attached to the Clintons.
"Read Maureen Dowd's article from today."
Not a chance. Anyway, it's their money and they can do what they want with it - as long as their contributions are legal.
Or want to be used by your husband.
They calmed down after an assurance was made that there would still be support and money left over for [Clinton].
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.
One question to you monitors: Is it really true that you are not allowed to make direct eye contact with Hillary?
Well, now that the arkancides seem to have run their course, we'll start seeing hollycides.
Hillary seems to get offended as quickly as any Muslim.
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.
Than you should be elated about what's going on in your own party.
