and all the amazing moments which, whether by enlightenment or scarring, bring about permanent change.

fundraiser and b-ball

in may 2012, george clooney hosted a multi-million-dollar campaign fundraiser in his home
for obama and 150 donors, who paid $40k to attend,
including barbra streisand, james brolin, jack black, robert downey jr, salma hayek,
stacy keibler; jeffrey katzenberg (dreamworks exec.), and diane von furstenberg.

(the biggest smile i've ever seen)

then, they hit george's tented basketball court for a friendly face-off
with actors tobey maguire, and white house staff.

“i want to thank clooney for letting us use his basketball court,” obama said.
"this guy has been talking smack about his basketball game ever since I’ve known him,”

“who won the game?” shouted mark knoller (cbs) the next morning.

obama joked “what basketball game? what are you talking about?”
then smiled, “as you might expect, george and I won,
but I think we are all winners because nobody got hurt.”

no cameras were allowed in,
so here are some other shots of barry in the court...
