Politicking with the stars

Here's an interesting piece on which candidates have received donations from various entertainment and sports figures. Paul Simon, for example, has stumped across Iowa with Chris Dodd. Jennifer Anniston has given $2,300 to Obama, and George Clooney and Matt Damon, along with Edward Norton, say they're for him too. "Babyface" Edmonds performed at a Clinton rally, along with Katherine McPhee from "American Idol." Randy Travis has given money to Bill Richardson, and Barbra Streisand says she's undecided but has donated to Clinton, Obama, Edwards and Dodd. Casey Kasem has given $250 to Kucinich.

Any Republicans? Kelsey Grammer has given $2,300 to Giuliani and Adam Sandler has given Rudy $2,100. Chuck Yeager has endorsed Duncan Hunter. And in more recent news, Barry Manilow, in addition to donating to several Democrats, has sent money to Ron Paul. (One wag on the Reason comment board wondered if he thought he was giving to RuPaul.)
