Clinton to Obama: Don't poach my Hollywood friends

Dreamworks co-founder David Geffen should know not to get in between two fighting dogs - particularly when one of the dogs is Hillary Clinton. Geffen held a huge fundraiser last night for Barack Hussein Obama, and made some off-the-cuff remarks to liberal columnist Maureen Dowd.

"I don't think that another incredibly polarizing figure, no matter how smart she is and no matter how ambitious she is -- and God knows, is there anybody more ambitious than Hillary Clinton? -- can bring the country together," Geffen said.

Clinton's campaign immediately went on the attack (do they know any other posture?) and told Obama to denounce Geffen and give his money back, presumably so the media mogul can give it to Hillary. They also accused Obama of embracing Geffen's divisive rhetoric.

What's so divisive about what Geffen said, anyway? Sounds right on target to me. In fact, Clinton's response only further proves how polarizing she is. She is obviously peeved because she thought she was just going to be given the Democratic nomination, and now she is going to have to work for it. Obama doesn't seem to be backing down, so prepare for more fireworks.
