Obama Goes to Hollywood

By Shailagh Murray
LAS VEGAS -- Sen. Barack Obama heads to Los Angeles tonight for a star-studded fundraiser.

The guest list reportedly will include actors Samuel L. Jackson and Dennis Quaid, model Cindy Crawford and boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, but the real VIPs are top fundraisers for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign, now being courted by Obama to help build his general-election war chest, and also to bulk up the Democratic National Committee, which lags well behind its GOP counterpart in 2008 cash.

The event will take place at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, former longtime site of the Academy Awards. Around 700 people are expected for the $28,500 DNC dinner, which actually started at 11 am local time, followed by a $2,300 reception.
