50 swag: Which stars may hit Obama's b-day bash?

If there's anybody who needs a stiff drink this week, it's probably President Obama, who's facing a cataclysmic national issue (the economy) and a personal one (turning 50). Luckily, Obama seems to have good friends who have gone to great lengths to throw him a star-studded birthday bash Wednesday at the Aragon Ballroom. (Despite the drama in Washington, Obama still is expected to attend.) Well, OK, it's a fundraiser, but Obama still gets to ring in his big 5-0 with Jennifer Hudson, who is scheduled to perform. Plus, we suspect a few other Chicago VIPs may be added to the guest list. Here's who our money is on. Don't worry, Mr. President, Blago is nowhere near this list. (Ariel Alexovich, RedEye)
