If you've been waiting to get invested in President Obama's campaign,

you should know that Mitt Romney and the corporate interests and

right-wing ideologues backing him want you to keep waiting.

They're counting on you to be tuned out for as long as possible --

until it's too late to make up the ground lost this summer without you.

Then they'll tune you out when President Romney is in the White House.

They're not running the kind of campaign that depends on ordinary people

wanting a say in the political process.

President Obama is -- and you could literally have his ear at an upcoming

dinner with you and a few other guests.

Pitch in $X or more now, and you'll be automatically entered for that

chance:

[url]

The President's been hosting these dinners with supporters like you for the

last year or so because they're what this entire campaign comes down to:

ordinary Americans having conversations about where we've been and

where we need to go.

No corporations in the room. Just people.

Don't pass up your chance to be at the next one.

We're adding a twist to the upcoming Dinner with Barack:

You not only have the chance to sit down for a meal with the President and

a guest of your choice. You also get to help pick the President's guest.

Pitch in $X or whatever you can to be automatically entered to win a seat

at the table, and then make sure to weigh in on who you think should join

President Obama.



Three supporters like you will get to bring a guest, so why shouldn't the

President? It's only fair.

And he's had some pretty amazing dinner guests lately: George Clooney,

Sarah Jessica Parker, and of course, President Bill Clinton.

So tell us, who's next?

Make sure your name is in the running to be at the Dinner with Barack

happening soon, and while you're at it, let us know who you think President

Obama should bring:

If you've got a second, here are some things you should know about this

upcoming dinner with President Obama and supporters like you.

Your airfare and transportation to the event? Covered. The meal? Covered.

Hotel? That's on us, too.

There are really just two things you need to do on your end: 1 Think about

who you'd like to bring. 2 Think about who you'd like the President to

bring.

That's right -- President Obama's bringing a guest, too, and you can help

decide who it is.

Let us know who you'd like the President to bring to dinner:
