This time it is a little interesting because the money seems to be spreading out between the Democratic candidates. Instead of one strong candidate, the Hollywood group seems to be supporting a few different candidates. What does this mean? Hard to tell this early. At the very least, it means that Hillary doesn’t have as much money as people might have thought she would have by now.
I think that this year there are alot more involved in alot of different issues. So I would imagine they could get quite a bit of money from the celeberties depending on what the candidate stands for on certain issues.
I don't think you will see Hollywood money as being a big issue until the Democratic Party settles on one candidate. Once there is one avenue for the money to flow to, then it might be an issue. Of course, I hear less from Hollywood these days than I did in the Clinton era - either they are getting better at keeping a lower profile or the enthusiasm is not what it was way back when.
