It's too bad politicians have to spend so much time with people who can spend $35K for a meal. Nobody gets elected president without fundraisers like this one.

President Barack Obama has spent time with around 25 wealthy donors who paid $35,800 each to talk with him behind closed doors at a Washington hotel.

Thoughts?
Yeah; he's a near perfect politician. He leverages every advantage, and makes no mistakes.

If he put a fraction of that talent to work on leadership of the policies he espouses, I'd be much happier.

Hey I am not saying others haven't done the same thing. Be nice if the price wasn't so high and more people could attend and he could actually listen to common peoples problems.

Too much money in politics. Not much you can do though when some people claim money is speech.

It's not like fundraisers are the only events he attends. Something tells me he appreciates the problems of common people far more than any of his potential opponents. Just listen to them all talk.
