The creative Clinton fundraising machine rolls on. Next Wednesday, they're hosting all-day national "Women's Finance Council Summit" at a Washington, D.C. hotel.

This column was e-mailed an invitation.

"The National Women’s Finance Council Summit on October 17th is a historic event not to be missed," it says. "This unique fundraiser is the first annual gathering of women for Hillary from all fifty states. Our all-day program includes political and issue break-out sessions, a conversation with Senator Hillary Clinton, and discussions with issue leaders and top national campaign staff."


By all day, they mean 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

An e-mail sent to some participants includes this caveat: "As a reminder, no seats can be reserved until you have contributed either at the $1,000 or the $2300 level. If you have maxed out, you raise a minimum of $4,000 to attend."

$2300 gets you an invite and a personal photograph with Clinton.

Those wanting to stake the event out can try to bypass security at the Capital Hilton.
