Warren's Million-Dollar Night with Hillary

Buffett's Best Bet

Warren Buffett's night with Hillary is getting a lot of attention this morning.  I've attached CNBC's coverage from reporter Brian Shactman as it appeared on this morning's Squawk Box.

Reuters headlines the $1 million take from the event and quotes Buffett giving President Bush a dig, as he mentioned an old Wall Street saying: "Buy stock in a company that's so good that an idiot can run it, because sooner or later one will. Now I think that sort of applies to the country too, actually."  It went over well with the Clinton supporters in attendance.

The Caucus, a political blog at the New York Times, says that $1 million from last night will help Clinton beat her fund-raising projections, although it's still possible those expectations were low-balled.
