As President Obama spoke to hundreds of 20- and 30-somethings packed into a steamy home furnishings showroom in New York Thursday, a woman in the crowd apparently felt it important to air her views.

"Use your leadership!" she yelled out, according to a pool report. "No war in Iran!"

The president, smiling, responded, "Nobody's announced a war, young lady. You're jumping the gun a little bit
."

The exchange occurred at a star-studded campaign fundraiser at ABC Carpet & Home, where the hosts included Deepak Chopra and Russell Simmons, among others, and the program included performances by The Roots, Ben Folds and Ingrid Michaelson. Some 900 people paid at least $1,000 each to attend the event
