Obama fundraiser at George Clooney's home nets $15 million

Hollywood pulled off another blockbuster as a star-studded guest list delivered $15 million into the campaign coffers of President Barack Obama Thursday night.

The fundraiser at the home of actor and activist George Clooney in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles attracted dozens of guests including DreamWorks studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg, along with designer Diane Von Furstenberg, Barbra Streisand, her actor husband Josh Brolin and actress/model Stacy Keibler.

In a largely jovial address to guests, Obama acknowledged that the road to the White House in 2012 will be much different than the campaign four years ago.

"This is going to be harder than it was the last time ... 2008 in some ways was lightening in a bottle," the president said.

Obama is locked in a tight race with presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
