The Democratic National Committee will benefit Saturday from a fundraising dinner honoring Al Gore. The dinner in New York was scheduled months ago, when perhaps it was thought there would be a Democratic presidential nominee.

The event has taken on the aura of a "unity dinner" because the host committee includes prominent New York-area fundraisers for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
