George Clooney plans to host a fundraiser for Barack Obama . . . in Switzerland. On Sept. 2, guests will pay $1,000 to hear George speak in Geneva, Switzerland. After the chat, 75 lucky guests, willing to pay $10,000, will dine at the home of Charles Adams, a member of Obama's
International National Finance Committee.
George isn't clueless of the pejorative "celebrity"-calling aimed at Obama. Back in March, he said that his own celebrity status could be a political liability to a politician like Obama. But I guess George's reluctance to campaign for his favorite politicians doesn't make him scared of raising money for them!
Even though he's staying off the stump, do you think news of George's fundraiser, in Europe no less, could hurt Obama?
