CBS' Phillips used Lawrence Olivier. His colleague Bill Whitaker responded with a Tom Cruise clip: "Hollywood has always felt like the Jerry Maguire of politics. Candidates would take the money and then run to smaller states with early primaries." But next year, the Golden State will move its primary forward to early February, to "play a bigger role." The news hook for Whitaker's report was Barack Obama's $1.5m fundraiser--part of the "the political pot of gold Hollywood liberally dishes out." Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot take celebrity donations for granted in the way her husband used to. Hedging his bets, director Steven Spielberg "is throwing fundraisers for both."
