Or rather, presidential candidates who need electoral votes, are perhaps NOT the luckiest people in the world, if Al Gore and John Kerry are any indication. Still, Babs is going to croon her little heart out for this year's favorite far-Left candidate:
Barbra Streisand will be among the headliners at a fund-raiser for Barack Obama on Sept. 16, where she will perform for the presidential candidate at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
The plans for the event were outlined this morning and Streisand confirmed that she would take the stage. The hotel ballroom holds an estimated 700 people.
Obama's fund-raiser is expected to be his final visit to raise money here before the general election.
Obama will start the evening with a 5 p.m. dinner event for about 250 people at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, the historic estate once owned by the legendary Doheny family. Tickets for the event are $28,500.
Later, he will attend a reception at the Beverly Wilshire, followed by Streisand's special performance. Tickets for the event are $2,500 per person.
Hey, if the Hollywood libs want to continue a losing tradition, I say more power to 'em!
