I completely understand presidential campaigns must contain a strong fundraising component. I also understand that it's going to put you in circles of wealth and among people whose lifestyles are anything but the average American's.
Welcome to President Obama's Sunday, as chronicled by the AP:
On Sunday, Obama was holding two fundraisers in Los Angeles. He is also appearing at a small, elite gathering at the home of entertainment mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, where Obama will be joined by former President Bill Clinton. His campaign calls the gathering a "thank you event" for longtime donors.
