Obama: The Las Vegas Spectacular

Back when Celine Dion was (temporarily) vacating the Colosseum, many of us did partook in this really fun parlor game about what acts could handle to fill the 4,000-room prestige venue night after night. Bette and Cher are the current residents and they do just groovy. Oprah did some shows there with Cher and Tina Turner, giving rise to speculation about Tina but nothing's come of that.

Turns out, we were thinking of the wrong Big O.

As in, Obama.

No, really. See what Jon Ralston of the Las Vegas Sun just posted. That's one of the invites for the Harry Reid fundraiser headlined by the President. Ralston's blog has links to two other versions.

Bette Midler and Sheryl Crow. Sounds like a great show. Maybe they'll sell a soundtrack for those of us whose jobs disallow us to give money to political candidates! I wonder if Rep. Shelley Berkley will hang out by the stage door in hopes of putting her sis on the line with POTUS!
