This is BETTER Than The Lottery . . .

This is so much better than the Lottery! First, by spending $5, you could meet the next President of the United States. And that's priceless. Second, your $5 has a better chance of doing good for the country by giving it to Barack Obama than it has in the State's coffers.

Here's the email I received from Barack Obama's campaign a couple of weeks ago. You, being thoughful and intelligent, may have received it too. If not, but you want to donate anyway, feel free to click the link below.

Jessica --

I wanted you to be the first to hear the news.

At the Democratic National Convention next month, we're going to kick off the general election with an event that opens up the political process the same way we've opened it up throughout this campaign.

Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his. On Thursday, August 28th, he's scheduled to formally accept the Democratic nomination in a speech at the convention hall in front of the assembled delegates.

Instead, the convention will move to an outdoor stadium where Barack will join more than 75,000 people for a huge, free, open-air event and deliver his acceptance speech to the American people.

It's going to be an amazing event, and Barack would like you to join him. Free tickets will become available as the date approaches, but we've reserved a special place for a few of the people who brought us this far and who continue to drive this campaign.

If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.

Make a donation now and you could have a front row seat to history:

We'll follow up with more details on this and other convention activities as we get closer, but please take a moment and pass this note to someone you know who might like to be there.

It will be an event you'll never forget.

Thank you,


David Plouffe
Campaign Manager
Obama for America

links and emphasis mine.

So please join me by making a $5 donation before July 31st. And if I win, I'm taking someone. I don't know who, but you can start trying to buy my affection now.
