Hollywood Hits D.C.

A new kind of spangled star was in D.C. this weekend--those from Hollywood, who flocked to the nation's capitol to witness history, sit on panels and host events throughout the city. "We were greeted by a chorus of courage," actor/producer Ashton Kutcher said of his reception. Kutcher and wife Demi Moore presented a movie she directed, The Presidential Pledge, before a large crowd at a local high school. Some celebrities who catalyzed the get-out-the-vote efforts think they are partly responsible for today's celebration. "I think it is very important to give us some credit," Sean Combs said onstage at a Howard University symposium with Queen Latifah and Ludacris. "We have stepped up and will continue to step up."
