Scenes from George Clooney’s epic fundraiser for President Obama, courtesy of our colleague Amy Gardner: Dinner was in a grand tent on the basketball court, bedecked with hydrangeas. Tobey Maguire sat on the host’s right; Barbra Streisand wore a black beret; and Clooney girlfriend-of-the-moment Stacy Keibler (absent from the state dinner and WHCD) made the cut this time. Oh, and the president was there! Pointing out a copy of the famous “Hope” print, Obama noted the original photo was taken as he sat next to Clooney at a Darfur conference. “This is the first time that George Clooney has actually been photo-shopped out of a picture,” he joked.
