Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will be getting a windfall from some highly visible members of the celebrity jet set for their presidential race.

Obama has won the support of Jennifer Aniston, Jackson Browne, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Dennis Haysbert, Tobey Maguire, Branford Marsalis, Eddie Murphy, Ed Norton, Ben Stiller and Gene Wilder, according to the national political journal the Hill.

Meanwhile, Clinton will be getting payouts from Candice Bergen, Christie Brinkley, Chevy Chase, Hugh Hefner, Christine Lahti, Marla Maples, Rosie O'Donnell, Jerry Springer and Barbra Streisand. O'Donnell also contributed to Bill Richardson's campaign.

Barry Manilow has contributed to both Obama and Clinton's campaigns.

Dodd is also supported by Paul Newman, Paul Simon and Lorne Michaels, among others, while actor Seth Green, and Don Henley, formerly of the Eagles, are backing John Edwards.

Obama banked checks from stars such as actors George Clooney, Barbra Streisand, and Morgan Freeman, Natalie Maines of the Grammy-winning Dixie Chicks, and director Ron Howard. The private fundraiser at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was attended by 300 contributors who donated at least $2,300 (€1,750) each.

This rhetorical eruption came one day after Geffen—along with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg, his partners in DreamWorks SKG—hosted a $2,300-per-person fundraiser for Obama at the Beverly Hilton, site of the glitzy Golden Globe Awards.

An all-star cast

Actors Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Morgan Freeman, and Christine Lahti also showed up. Singers Jackson Browne and the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines were there. And so were producers Norman Lear, Ron Howard, Lawrence Bender, producer of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," and J.J. Abrams. The heads of several major studios also attended. Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington bought tickets but did not show up.

Hollywood had a long romance with Bill Clinton when he was in the White House, but Obama has also benefited from the star treatment, most noticeably from a high-profile endorsement from Oprah Winfrey, who has donated $2,300 to his campaign. Dennis Haysbert, who played a fictional black president on the show "24," is trying to elect a real one, donating $2,300 to Obama.

Other black celebrity donors to Obama include Will Smith, Chris Rock, Sidney Poitier and Bradford Marsalis, each of whom donated $4,600, and Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy, Isaiah Washington, Tyra Banks, Morgan Freeman, Halle Berry, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Hill Harper, each of whom gave $2,300.
