I'll add to what AemJeff said
What you (along with everyone else who makes these dark mutterings about Ayers) seem to be implying is that Ayers holds the same views that he held forty years ago, and the only reason he would hold a fundraiser for Obama is to support someone who agrees with those old views. That is, you're trying to create the impression that there's this ongoing stealth mission to place Weather Underground operatives into high office.
This is patently ridiculous. Ayers is as much a part of The Establishment now as anyone is. As far as I can tell, the worst thing he's done since Obama got into politics is shoot his mouth off a couple of times.
