By way of a footnote there were four sponsorship levels for the convention.  The nine platinum level sponsors ($5,000) included Joe Biden for President and Hillary Clinton for President.  The two gold level sponsors ($2,500) were Chris Dodd for President and Bill Richardson for President.  None of the presidential campaigns sponsored at the Silver level ($1,000).  The ten bronze sponsors ($500) included John Edwards for President and Dennis Kucinich for President.
