(Newser) – Leonardo DiCaprio has a big date coming up, with an old married guy: Bill Clinton. The one-on-one get-together with the former president was auctioned off at a gala for Sean Penn's Haiti charity Saturday, and DiCaprio bid as much as $100,000 but was still outbid. So he proposed a team-up with his rival, turning the "date" into a double date for four people, StarPulse reports. He and an unknown woman ended up paying $200,000 each to win the day, OMG! reports. All in all, the bash raised $2.25 million for Penn's charity.

Clinton's stealing obama's thunder again. It turns out he's not only the first black president, but he's also the first gay president.

Sean Penn, the only and last American to meet eye ball to eye ball with Saadam Huesein in an attempt to avert what G.W. Bush was about to do....Saadam insisted he had no WMD's....Sean Penn a true American hero. Sean Penn, the Robin Hood, the Superman....deliverer of good news for the Katrina victims, the Haitian people... This man has no quit in the good that he does. Congratulations to him and his foundation. 1942
