OAKS BLUFF, Mass. — Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton returned to her favorite family vacation spot Saturday to raise money for her presidential campaign at a celebrity-studded event.
Clinton — accompanied by her husband and their daughter, Chelsea — swayed to the music as singer Carly Simon and her two children, Ben and Sally Taylor, sang "Devoted to You" for a Martha's Vineyard crowd of more than 2,000.
Simon, along with actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen, showered the Clintons with praise and predicted the senator from New York will be elected the nation's first woman president.
"Is it Mrs. President or Madam President?" Simon asked.
The Clintons frequently vacationed on Martha's Vineyard during their years in the White House.
In a speech, the senator blasted the Bush administration on everything from failure to address global warming to education and the economy. She aimed her sharpest remarks at the Bush administration's "indifference and incompetence" in dealing with Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath.
