The latest Obama e-mail to supporters begins: "Want to meet George Clooney and Barack Obama -- at Clooney's house? He's hosting supporters at his home next month to help build support for this campaign and elect President Obama in November. And he's saving seats for two grassroots supporters like you and their guests. It's just not a chance most people get -- well, ever."
The New York Daily News reports the e-mail from Obama deputy campaign manager Julianna Smoot advertises an "Obama, Clooney, and You" contest. "George Clooney is doing his part to help re-elect the President, but he also knows that it's folks like you who will decide this election. That's why we're reserving a few spots for grassroots supporters." All this is meant to add "little people" to a $6 million fundraiser for Hollywood's One Percent.
