Warren Buffett, Barack ObamaThis month, the Berkshire Hathaway CEO will appear at a Democratic National Committee event in New York.

Then on Oct. 27, Buffett will go to a $38,500-a-ticket event in a Chicago suburb that will include major donors in the area, such as former Obama campaign national finance Chairwoman Penny Pritzker and John Rogers, another early Obama campaign backer.
