I don’t really have anything to say on the Clinton-Geffen-Obama spat from yesterday, except to observe that I was becoming so overtaken with Obama-mania (he’s dreamy) that I was finding myself kinda sorta hoping he would decide that the time had come to position himself as the candidate of intellectual property law reform. Well, with David Geffen as his finance chair, probably not.

UPDATE: As you’ll see in comments, Geffen hosted a big Obama fundraiser but isn’t actually the finance chair. His real finance chair is Penny Pritzger, a Chicago billionaire who also happens to be the 89th most powerful woman in the world. Or at least she was in 2006. Hillary Clinton, by contrast, is 18th, just above Ann Livermore of Hewlett Packard and just below Chilean president Michelle Bachelet.
