BuzzFeed caught up with few of Obama's celebrity fund-raisers and campaigners Monday and asked them about the campaign, and about what advice they'd offer a defeated Republican party.
"I'm so, so relieved. We had been campaigning in swing states with Obama surrogates and the races were so close. I was so panicked, I couldn't sleep for a solid month just worrying about it," said Jennifer Westfeldt at Cosmopolitan's "Cosmo 100" luncheon at Michael's restaurant in New York on Monday. Westfeldt, along with her longtime boyfriend Jon Hamm, campaigned for Obama in a number of swing states and attended the Democratic National Convention.
"I think that [Republicans] have to do a lot of soul-searching and realize that they're totally out of touch with America and the diversity of America. The fact that they have absolutely no relationship with women and minorities is shameful," she added. "They need to understand that it's not just about rich white men. It just isn't."
