LOS ANGELES (Aug. 12) -- President Bill Clinton mingled with music and movie luminaries Tuesday night as he helped California Democratic gubernatorial nominee Gray Davis raise about $3 million for his fall campaign.
Among those on hand at one $1 million event at the home of Jeffrey
Katzenberg were Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Jeff Goldblum, Sharon Stone, Rob Reiner and Clint Black. Clinton attended another $1 million event at the Los Angeles home of developer Bruce Karatz, and earlier in the day raised $1 million for Davis at a San Francisco luncheon.
Clinton made no mention of the Monica Lewinsky controversy throughout
the day, but did tell the crowd at the Karatz event, "No matter what you read, every day has been a joy for me and I have loved it."
Clinton returned to Washington overnight for a meeting Wednesday with his national security team on the U.S. embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania.
But first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton is on the road on behalf of the Democrats, touring a flood-damaged area of Milwaukee and attending a "Wisconsin Unity Rally" Wednesday night.
