Oprah to Throw Fancy Fundraiser for Obama

Oprah Winfrey is opening up her Santa Barbara estate to throw an exclusive, ultra high end fundraiser for Barack Obama.

A ticket in the door starts at $2,300, the most allowable under federal campaign laws. If you want to stick around for a VIP reception — mingling with a list of yet-to-be announced celebs — better be prepared to raise at least $25,000 from friends, family and a few high-class strangers. For $50,000, you can stay for dinner (and wander through the house while searching for a bathroom).

One invitee is positively giddy over the event.


"It's a trifecta for Obama," said Hollywood politico and Huffington Post blogger Rick Jacobs, one of the recipients of Tuesday's fundraiser e-mail. "New donors, a rarefied ball with the queen of celebrities and a chance to glimpse the woman everyone seems to want at least for vice president. This one's hard to top."

Who wants Oprah to be vice-president?

    As a husband who has lost his wife partially to Oprah I am only glad that she isn't on the Hillary bandwagon.
