Sweet blog special: Obama's Harvard pals high dollar fundraiser. UPDATE. Dodd funder.

| 1 Comment

CAMBRIDGE, MASS.-- White House hopeful Barack Obama on Tuesday evening headlines a high-dollar event --$2,300 per person--organized in part by his Harvard Law School pals.
One of the hosts is Boston's Alan Solomont--a mega Democratic fundraiser whose support is a coup for Obama. One of the others on the host committee includes Obama's constitutional law professor at Harvard, Larry Tribe and noted Democrat Henry Morgenthau.
This evening in Washington, former President Bill Clinton is the star at a funder for Hillary Rodham Clinton's bid.
UPDATE: And I ran into another Dem 2008 contender, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Ct.) Monday night at the Charles Hotel here off Harvard Square. Dodd, upbeat about his long shot chances when he chatted with a group of reporters I was with--had just wrapped up a big funder at the hotel that pumped a few hundred thousand in his war chest.

Something many of us never thought about was those Law School friends and their support and connections. Duh.
he was well liked there and would pick up the support from that.
How traditional we are thinking in the usual places line.
And Hillary has to have Bill dig up the support for Hillary. They've been bleeding old Clintonistas to Obama.
