Geffen Statement: I Have “No Formal Role” in Obama Campaign

David Geffen just issued a statement, perhaps to diffuse the current war of words between the Clinton and Obama camps. He also says he was quoted accurately.

"Despite reports to the contrary, I am not the campaign finance chair and have no formal role in the Obama campaign, nor will I, other  than to offer my strongest possible personal support for his candidacy. My comments, which were quoted accurately by Maureen Dowd, reflect solely my personal beliefs regarding the Clintons."
