Would You Want to Have Dinner With Obama and George Clooney?

You don't necessarily have to like George Clooney or President Obama to want to have dinner with them, but critics probably won't fork over a $35,800 donation for a shot. That's how much a single raffle ticket is going for in the "Obama, Clooney and You" sweepstakes, and there are only two tickets available. The winners will get to attend a high-profile May 10 gala at George Clooney's house. Barbra Streisand and Jeffrey Katzenberg are also expected to attend.

But it won't be left up to chance. The Wall Street Journal reports there will, of course, be background checks, and campaign officials will make sure the winners represent "an appropriate range of views, backgrounds, and interests." Unfortunately, that range excludes everyone who can't afford to spend $35,800 on a raffle. But let's assume for a second that money is no object. Would you want to have dinner with President Obama and George Clooney?

    A lot of you star gazers don't realize it but people like George Clooney and the likes (Hollywood) are throwing you and your freedom under the bus, if you had any doubt about the unnecessary influence of Hollywood or Large Corporations have on your freedom this government this article shows it.

    The President should be available to the people not because someone won a f%cking lottery on a 36,000.00 donation, can't you people see this? Or you just don't give a f^ck. To all the Hollywood types throwing your money around to influence the government, A HARDY F&CK; YOU!!!

    God we need a revolution, I am sick of these political parties and their cuddling up to Hollywood and Corporations!!!

    I agree, but Presidents have been having these large dollar amount plate dinners since I can remember (not just Obama), and only the rich can afford them (not just Hollywood types). To me, they cater to the rich whomever you are. You'll never see any $10.00 plate dinners (something you and I could afford) for the average common man for any of these politicians (Congressmen included).

    When mr. Obama is finished with this country you want be able to have a $2.00 dinner. Spread the wealth around,but make sure it gets in his pocket

    Threre hasn't been a $2.00 dinner since the 1960s. And, just how is Obama putting money in his own pocket from campaign funding? You can spend campaign money on trips, on advertising, etc., even donate it to charity, but since 1989 you can't put it in your own bank account. If he so much as blinked at putting campaign money in his own bank account, the Repubs would all die of happiness shouting it to the heavens and sky.
