Hollywood Bowl -- Or Brawl?

In the Hollywood Bowl – where Barack Obama is facing off against Hillary Clinton — so far it seems like no contest. Barack clearly got the best of Hillary in yesterday's war of the press releases that was started by the really mean and nasty comments David Geffen made about both Hillary and Bill Clinton.

While Obama has promised many times to run an "unconventional campaign," that apparently doesn't preclude letting your surrogates do your mud slinging for you. And what's more, Barack was not letting Hillary mother him; he was very in her face last night when he told reporters he had nothing to apologize for.

And then there's this: a list in this morning's New York Daily News of what Hollywood names are backing which candidate. The Daily News is more charitable than I'm going to be, saying all of these names are "A-listers."

I don't think so.

Here is the list:

David Geffen
Oprah Winfrey
George Clooney
Halle Berry
Ben Affleck
Matt Damon
Sharon Stone
Oliver Stone
Jennifer Anniston
Denzel Washington
Eddie Murphy
Demi Moore
Ashton Kutcher
Will Smith

Elizabeth Taylor
Quincy Jones
Martha Stewart
Janet Jackson
Bette Midler
Reese Witherspoon
Meg Ryan
Robert De Niro
Chevy Chase.

I'd say right now, in the Hollywood Bowl, Barack has easily out-scored and out-classed Hillary. Her list just looks like so yesterday.
