As we're organizing the last dinner with supporters on my last campaign, our kind of politics is running up against a very cynical calculation:

That a few billionaires writing $X million checks are enough to overpower the voices of millions of Americans.

That's why I want to meet you for dinner.

Donate $X or whatever you can to our people-powered campaign, and be automatically entered to join me -- hotel and airfare covered for you and a guest.

Overnight, we aren't going to change the rules that allow outside groups to spend hundreds of millions of dollars attacking me on the airwaves.

So we have to stay on the case every day.

out of more than 3 million people like you supporting this effort -- had outraised Mitt Romney and the Republicans for the first time since April.

If we keep doing this our way, I guarantee you there'll be no stopping us.

Donate $X or whatever you can today and you'll be automatically entered to be at the table:

Obama - Biden

Look, I know an email about the Obama for America budget may not be as cool as, say, a huge sale on fall jackets, but I gotta tell you:

Right now, I'm making some of our biggest budgeting decisions of this election.

I'm getting requests for the last weekends of voter registration drives in Ohio and North Carolina, and the final staff to put in place in certain battleground states, and we're about to hit a point where there's no turning back.

There are a lot of decisions that are sitting in my maybe pile, and they're either going to be a yes or no, depending on what happens next.

You have a chance to make this easy for me, and for everyone out there on the ground who's waiting.

Chip in $X or more for the last 47 days of this campaign today.

If you're like me, you have a lot of reasons you're gung ho about winning this election.

There's a ton on the line, and there is so much we want to do to bring this election home -- but only 47 days left.

We're not waiting on any millionaires to cut big magic checks for the last few weeks. You decide if we have the resources to do this.

Where we stand right now, this race is incredibly close. I don't think there's much value in looking at the polls these days, but if you do, you'll see that one day President Obama is up by 2 percent, and then Mitt Romney is up by 2 percent the next. Sometimes, they're dead even. The election is truly anyone's game. And what we do right now will determine who wins.

The strength of the American dream is that we all have a shot at it.

It's what will always unite us.

There are just 47 days left until Election Day.

If you agree with this vision for our country -- for all Americans -- then I need your help in the time we've got left:

Thank you.

Because your donation today helps more than if you waited until the last week or two of the campaign to donate. Really, it does.

The resources we have today help do the things we just can't do later. Things like funding voter registration drives before deadlines come up around the end of the month. And your donation today can help hire that enthusiastic, young field organizer for the full last six weeks of the campaign -- something we simply can't do with just a few weeks to go.

So there you have it. Enter this cool contest, and help President Obama win the much bigger one coming up in just 47 days:

Sure, this dinner will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll tell your grandkids about and all that jazz, but here's why I really think you should chip in $X or whatever you can to be automatically entered :

Where we stand right now, this race is incredibly close. I don't think there's much value in looking at the polls these days, but if you do, you'll see that one day President Obama is up by 2 percent, and then Mitt Romney is up by 2 percent the next. Sometimes, they're dead even. The election is truly anyone's game. And what we do right now will determine who wins.

So there you have it. Enter this cool contest, and help President Obama win the much bigger one coming up in just 47 days:

Obama - Biden --

I've got to be honest, I don't care who wins this last Dinner with Barack.

All I care about is who wins on November 6th.

Sure, this dinner will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you'll tell your grandkids about and all that jazz, but here's why I really think you should chip in $X or whatever you can to be automatically entered :

Because your donation today helps more than if you waited until the last week or two of the campaign to donate. Really, it does.

The resources we have today help do the things we just can't do later. Things like funding voter registration drives before deadlines come up around the end of the month. And your donation today can help hire that enthusiastic, young field organizer for the full last six weeks of the campaign -- something we simply can't do with just a few weeks to go.

So there you have it. Enter this cool contest, and help President Obama win the much bigger one coming up in just 47 days:
