POLITICS: President Obama in California, fundraising swing, February 15-16, events in Southern California and Bay Area....

* SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA events:

Wednesday, February 15  A Musical Performance with the President, 4:00 pm, at the home of Colleen and Bradley Bell in Los Angeles, California.  ($250 to $500 per person)

Wednesday, February 15:  Cocktails and Dinner with the President, 5:00 pm, at the home of Colleen and Bradley Bell in Los Angeles, California.  ($35,800 per individual)

Thursday, February 16:  Breakfast with the President, 7:00 am, at the home of Jeff and Nancy Stack in Corona del Mar, California.  ($2,500 to $35,800 per individual)

* San Francisco Chronicle (Matier & Ross):

   Frequent flier: President Obama will be back in San Francisco next month - once again as part of a West Coast fundraising swing.

   A pair of Feb. 16 events are planned in the city - there's the $35,800-a-head dinner for 50 guests at the Pacific Heights home of novelist Robert Mailer Anderson and his wife, Nicola, followed by a large reception at a yet-to-be-decided public venue where tickets will go for anywhere from $100 to $10,000.

   This will mark Obama's fourth visit to the Bay Area in a year. His last trip, in October, was also to raise money.
