Buffett to Help Clinton Raise Money on Wall Street

I was so bummed when I first read that Buffett was hosting a fundraiser for Clinton, but just learned he's supporting BOTH Obama and Clinton equally. I sure hope there will be a Buffett-Obama fundraiser in NYC soon -- I'll keep you posted...

Buffett, who built Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. from a failing textile maker into a holding company with a market value of $168 billion, said last month that he would help either Clinton or Illinois Senator Barack Obama with their presidential campaigns if asked. He will also host a fundraiser for Obama, said Obama spokeswoman Jen Psaki.

Clinton and Obama both ``would apply enormous energy toward the right goals,'' Buffett said in a May 9 interview. ``Either one would make a great president.''
