What does President Obama want for his 50th b-day? Money.
Now that the debt ceiling debate has been settled (at least for a while), Obama's plan to return home to Chicago on Wednesday for his birthday celebration is back on, according to the Chicago Tribune. Part of the party will be a special dinner for some donors who will fork out $35,800 each. The money will be split between Obama's reelection campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Headlining the b-day shebang are singer Jennifer Hudson, jazz pioneer Herbie Hancock and the band OK Go.
