More details have come in regarding last night's star-studded fundraising rally in Hollywood for Barack Obama.

Some highlights from a rallygoer:

  • Dennis Quaid announced even his 7½-month-old twins are gaga for Obama: "His twins see Barack on TV and say, 'Ohhh!' "
  • Don Cheadle joked from the stage that he's hoping his involvement with the campaign will mean he—"not Will Smith"—will end up playing Barack in his biopic.
  • Seal explained that although he is not a citizen, he "has a vested interest in this country" because his children are American. The singer and husband of Heidi Klum also "became particularly animated" regarding Barack's comments about the importance of families. Seal said he is "appalled by the way kids speak to their parents."

Obama reportedly raised nearly $5 million last night. Other celeb attendees included Cindy Crawford, Jennifer Beals and Sugar Ray Leonard.
