Is Obama Campaign to Feel the Nuclear Wintour?

>> We know Anna Wintour's an Obama girl, but an email from the Senator's camp on Tuesday may have strained the tie a little.  Right in the middle of fashion week — Sept. 9, to be exact — the Charles Nolan studio is hosting an Obama campaign fashion fundraising event, which a Tuesday campaign email to supporters referred to as "Runway to Change with Special Guests Sarah Jessica Parker & Ann Wintour."

Ann Wintour.  It's fairly safe to assume they were referring to Anna Wintour, who as of early July had contributed between $100,000 and $200,000 to the Obama campaign, but this still seems like a big faux pas — she is their "special guest," after all. Besides, we all know the story of how Hillary Clinton was publicly chastised by Anna after she pulled out of Vogue — she has no qualms about putting politicians in their place.

Here's the nail in the coffin: Obama spokesman Hari Sevugan joked about the email mix-up: "It was either a typo or the extra syllable would have thrown off the haiku we were going for."  At least Anna's name is spelled correctly on the formal invites, but . . . yikes, that might have ruined any chance for Michelle Obama to nab a Vogue cover, not to mention how many campaign dollars they might have just lost.
