Obama Headlining Two Fundraisers Tonight
By Michael A. Fletcher
President Obama is scheduled to headline his first political fundraisers since becoming president tonight. First, he was to speak at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, where he will address an audience that paid as much as $30,400 per couple for tickets. Later, the president was to appear at the Warner Theater for an event where tickets were going for as much as $2,500. Both events will benefit the Democratic National Committee.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs brushed aside any suggestion that the president's fundraising was unseemly during the economic downturn, saying the president would acknowledge the dire fiscal climate in his remarks. Moreover, he said, "We haven't seen politics by either party stop in this period."
