The first couple attended a much-promoted fundraiser in Manhattan Thursday night at the home of actress Sarah Jessica Parker. So how did that go? Did the combined star power crash the West Village power grid? Did President Obama raise (tasteful) basketsful of cash? Did first lady Michelle Obama steal the show?

No, yes, and yes. That’s what it seems from the report of pool journalists who accompanied the president, in any case. We can’t write from personal experience because due to a postal glitch our personal invite went to Meryl Streep instead.

First of all, very famous people did attend the $40,000-per-person event. The aforementioned Ms. Streep was there, for instance. Co-host Anna Wintour, Vogue editor, helped preside over the event.
