Hollywood conflicted on candidates as California primary date nears

Steven Spielberg, arguably Hollywood's most influential citizen, co-hosted a fund-raiser early last year that netted $2.1 million for Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign. A few weeks later, Spielberg joined DreamWorks partners Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen in throwing a fund-raiser for Barack Obama, Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic nod, that yielded $2.2 million. Spielberg has since formally endorsed Clinton and given the U.S. senator from New York the maximum donation of $2,300. But he has also contributed the same amount to Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois, and the primary campaigns of Democrats John Edwards and Bill Richardson -- who has since dropped out of the race.
