Celebrities at the DNC

The connection between Hollywood and the White House goes back to President Warren G. Harding, who was the first to use entertainers on the campaign trail, said Alan Schroeder, an associate professor of journalism at Northeastern University here and author of "Celebrity-in-Chief: How Show Business Took Over the White House."

"Democrats do exceedingly well in the show-biz community," Schroeder said. "Republicans attract the second-string, Hollywood Squares crowd."
