The good news for Democrats: Barack Obama attended a $5,000-per-head fundraiser at the Waldorf-Astoria on Tuesday. The bad news: Two years ago, Obama was drawing twice as much. As reported by, donors paying $5,000 received refreshments and an opportunity for their families to take a picture with the Commander-in-Chief. But a similar Waldorf fund-raiser in 2011 — just as Obama was gearing up for his reelection bid — required donors to pony up $10,000 for a photo op. Per person. The thinking among many deep-pocketed donors, according to the source, is: “Why would I give money to Obama?”
