Let's just call it a wage gap

President Obama spent a mere four hours in Chicago last night - but, with 750 people attending a fundraiser reception at the Hyatt and another 130 at the $15,200-a-ticket dinner at Penny Pritzker's home, he pulled in well over $2 million for the Democratic National Committee.Put differently, last night Obama made approximately 62,500 times more per hour fundraising than I do at my internship.
