Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Hollywood celebrities continue to pucker up to Bill Clinton and his party, giving $4.7 million to Democrats during this election cycle (and just $890,000 to the GOP), including gifts from party veterans such as Barbra Streisand ($71,500 to Democrats) and would-be politicos, like Playboy bunny-cum-MTV host Jenny McCarthy ($1,000 to Clinton/Gore).
But a review of this year's campaign finance records shows some surprising disputes -- and agreements -- among famous Hollywood pairings.
Glenn Close tormented Michael Douglas and his family in Fatal Attraction -- but had they talked politics, that bunny might still be alive. Douglas ($33,500) and Close ($500) both gave to Democrats. Things aren't as cozy in Douglas' real family: His father, actor Kirk Douglas, gave $1,000 to Republican Pete Wilson's presidential bid.
