George Dubya and Arianna H

The west side of L.A. was gridlocked during the commute hour Tuesday p.m. as George W. Bush made his way to the Bel Air home of hefty GOP contributor Elliott Broidy, where an estimated $1.3 million was raised.

Meanwhile, those invited to a book party for Arianna Huffington were forewarned of the traffic before leaving for the site, the BevHills home of Lynda and Stewart Resnick, where you could bet the group was mostly Democrats. The book is Huffington’s “On Becoming Fearless” and the guests were entertained by a rendition of the song “Fearless” as sung by the Sugar Tits, the trio of Jill Sobule, Kay Hanley and Michelle Lewis. They had also sung at the N.Y. and SanFran book bashes.

Guests were gifted with a CD of the band’s tune. Among those writing their thoughts on fearlessness in the book are showbiz reps Diane Keaton, Marcy Carsey and Sherry Lansing. But it is Huffington that makes the book, well, fearless. Among those applauding her on Tuesday night were Rita Wilson, Pat and Michael York, L.A.’s Police Chief William Bratton and wife, Rikki Klieman.

Huffington winged out for Vegas to appear in Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit. “I’m going around the country to talk about fearlessness,” she said. “The theme is: ‘Fearlessness is contagious’.”
