STAR POWER….The LA Times reports on the political lay of the land recently in Tinsel Town:

Here’s the buzz these days: Clinton’s presidential bid has begun to regain momentum over Obama’s in the entertainment industry. In fact, it’s become so strong that Steven Spielberg, once considered a solid supporter of Illinois Democrat Obama, is now believed to be leaning in favor of Clinton, according to longtime industry politicos.

….At a celebrity-studded reception at News Corp. President Peter Chernin’s house — an event co-hosted by Spielberg and television financier Haim Saban — Clinton brought in $850,000….Later, the junior senator from New York went to director Brett Ratner’s house, where she raised $250,000….The former first lady wowed crowds last week, said longtime Hollywood political consultant Donna Bojarsky….”She did a real tour-de-force analysis of the world.”

But who is Paris Hilton supporting? And how is Fred Thompson faring? More gossip, please.
