Tracking Obama and Becks
Obama wins rock star status this week. There were scant headlines about Becks - at least on the entertainment circuit, which is where I'm at cruising altitude - but one of my faves about Obama was "Entertainment community excited about Obama, but many biding their time on endorsement." That's from the Associated Press. Who already loves him, according to the story? George Clooney, Halle Berry and Oprah. And, three of Hollywood's power-brokers - Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen - are hosting a Feb. 20 reception for Obama.
