    Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel get political from time to time.

    Along with various other VIPs, the longtime Barack Obama supporters were guests tonight at the West Village home of  Harvey Weinstein and Georgina Chapman, who hosted the president and some of his top donors (including designer Tommy Hilfiger) for an evening of discussion about recent national tragedies and Obama's legacy.

    The Democratic National Committee event was super-private and security was as tight as it gets—but, we at least can tell you that Biel and Timberlake were said to have snagged seats near the guest of honor himself.

    Obama specifically touched on recent events in Boston and West Texas before addressing his future as the President of the United States.

    He said that, after the tragedies occured—in two very different places—he saw so many people coming together he wished that he could "institutionalize" that, and take that spirit of helping and getting things done into politics. Obama asked, "What do we need to do to make sure that same spirit is reflected in our politics and our government?"

    The president, speaking of his second term in office, also told the guests, "You start thinking about the history, the three-and-a-half [years] I've got is not a lot, so I've got to make sure that I use everything I've got to make as much of a difference as I can."
