The New York Post reports that a fundraiser for President Obama’s re-election campaign headed by Vice President Joe Biden  was not exactly the hottest ticket in town yesterday.  Compared to Obama the $5,000 a-head-fundraiser should have been a bargain but apparently weak demand led the campaign to say the fee was “negotiable” which must be an embarrassment for a sitting vice president.

Maybe the setting of the Pool Room at the Four Seasons was a little too ostentatious for a city that  has been distracted by the Occupy Wall Street protesters lately.
