President Obama went back to the celebrity well last night with a $40,000-a-head fundraiser hosted by Jay-Z and Beyoncé at the rapper’s 40/40 club in Manhattan. And there are more glitzy galas to come as Vogue editor Anna Wintour hosts international events on the president’s behalf in London tonight and Paris on Oct. 3.
