Abstract (Document Summary)

[Richard Dreyfuss] has already supported [Al Gore] in important swing states such as Michigan and New Jersey, and [Donna Bojarsky] is helping him prepare a trip to Maine. [Robert Redford]'s political assistant is fielding a flurry of requests. And [Rob Reiner]'s political czar is organizing Reiner-hosted celebrity tours of get-out-the-vote rallies across America.

Chad Griffin, 27, went to work for Rob Reiner after he met the director while serving as White House liaison for Reiner's 1995 film "The American President." Griffin was headed for a State Department job when Reiner asked him to head up the Reiner Foundation, a pro- children charity. Griffin said he devotes half his time to Reiner political initiatives, from ballot drives to the presidential race.
