MRS. CHARLES RANGEL ATTENDS MRS. OBAMA'S FUNDRAISER
Mrs. Michelle Obama held a $2300 per person fundraiser today in New York where Mrs. Alma Rangel wife of Congressman Charles Rangel was in attendance. Also present were Mrs. Ted (Victoria) Kennedy, Patricia Blanchet the widow of "60 Minutes" correspondent Ed Bradley and John W. Rogers Jr., a Chicago mutual fund executive who has been one of Sen. Obama’s top fundraisers to name a few.
Charles Rangel has been a diehard pitbull on the attack more often than not for Hillary Clinton. He has been the undisputed Dean of Harlem for the last 36 years. Congressman Rangel did personally encourage Barack Obama early on to run for president reminding him that if he didn't do it now he might come to regret letting the moment pass and never to return. Charlie makes no apologies for strongly supporting the Clintons no matter what but has gone on record to indicate he has great pride, admiration and respect for Barack.
It will be interesting as to what Mr. and Mrs. Rangel will discuss at the dinner table tonight as they balance the checkbook together. I know their money was well spent today and Mrs. Obama will do the right thing with it...GIVE IT TO HER HUSBAND'S CAMPAIGN WITH A $MILE. Everything ain't always what it seems...If the Clintons were smart they wouldn't sweat Charlie about his wife's public support for OBAMA '08. Sometimes...A Sistah Has Got To Do What A Sistah's Got To Do With Or Without Her Man. Now, run and tell that!
