• Pretty damn cool

    Front Row with Michelle and Barack

    It's safe to say this campaign has run a lot of contests.

    But even I think this convention contest is pretty damn cool.

    You'll be automatically entered to meet President Obama in Charlotte and, when he takes the stage, sit up front with First Lady Michelle Obama if you pitch in whatever you can today.

    You'll literally have the best seat in the house for an important moment in history.

    When you're there, you'll be representing millions of other people who enter these contests because you're all part of a grassroots effort to re-elect the President of the United States, up against interest groups that are trying to spend an ungodly sum of money to buy this election.

    The donation you make right now is how we fight back. And with this contest, you've got extra incentive to join in.

    Pitch in what you can today to be automatically entered.

    Good luck.
