Katzenberg Back In the Clinton Fold

Ruby Cramer reports on a meeting last year between Hillary Clinton and Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg, who is "positioning himself, publicly and privately, as Clinton's top money man ahead of the next presidential race."

"The private, and previously unreported, springtime meeting affirmed Katzenberg's second-coming inside Clinton circles. Seven years ago, the DreamWorks Animation CEO was at the center of a high-profile act of political betrayal, spurning his old friends Bill and Hillary Clinton for a young Illinois senator named Barack Obama in the earliest months of the Democratic primary. Andy Spahn, Katzenberg's longtime political adviser, also attended the 2013 meeting. He described the conversation as 'just old friends catching up.' But a potential White House bid was discussed, according to two other people with direct knowledge of the meeting."
