Meryl Streep attends Obama’s fundraising event


The president and first lady Michelle Obama made a rare joint fundraising appearance when they visited the home of actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The intimate dinner banked about $2 million, with 50 people paying $40,000 each. Speaking in a dimly lighted art-filled room, Obama told supporters they would play a critical role in an election that would determine a vision for the nation’s future.

You’re the tie-breaker, you’re the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes.

Among the celebrities on hand to hear Obama’s remarks were Oscar winner Meryl Streep, fashion designer Michael Kors and Vogue editor Anna Wintour, who moderated a private question-and-answer session between the president and the guests. Broderick, who was starring in a Broadway musical, was absent.
