"Don't sell yourselves short" Obama tells Hollywood

Hollywood celebrities donate 1.3 million US dollars to Democrat Barack Obama's presidential campaign in Los Angeles. Among Obama's Beverly Hill friends are film producer Steven Spielberg and actor Eddie Murphy and tickets at the star-studded reception sold for 2,300 US dollars, the largest individual donation for a federal campaign. But BBC News reports Mr. Obama telling Hollywood, "Don't sell yourselves short...You are the storytellers of our age."
