Raising money behind closed doors: Obama's Hollywood ATM

Pres. Barack Obama attended today two major celebrity fundraisers in New York. Obama has had 19 celebrity fundraisers this year and raised $51 million.

CNN's Erin Burnett notes that Obama is never seen at the fundraisers hosted by famous individuals, i.e. actors, and directors. He is not conducting any photo-ops bragging about his Hollywood support.

CNN Contributors John Avlon, Reihan Salam and Democratic Strategist Jamal Simmons comes OutFront.
