The dinner combines celebrity, money and a hot-button issue in a manner unseen in politics before. Hollywood is home to some of the most high-profile backers of gay marriage and the 150 donors who are paying $40,000 to attend Clooney’s dinner Thursday night are sure to welcome Obama’s embrace of the issue.

The trip includes two fundraisers in Seattle and comes a day after Obama announced his backing of gay marriage.
