If you're wondering why we have so many contests to meet President Obama, I'll be honest.

Yeah, it's partly because they're really popular.

But it's also because we don't accept any money from Washington lobbyists or corporate-interest groups -- not a dime. We don't want them owning any piece of this campaign or expecting any special consideration.

So Barack Obama has only you. And the feedback from people like you is that they like chipping in a few dollars at a time -- and if there's a chance to meet President Obama as a result, all the better.

What do you say? Right now you have some pretty cool options, each with a deadline approaching. While there's still a spot for you:

1 Enter to meet President Obama and President Clinton for an evening on the town in New York City:

[url]

2 Throw your name in to join President Obama and the First Lady at Sarah Jessica Parker's house in New York:

[url]

Of course, you can always enter both.

I don't really care what you choose. As someone who oversees the campaign budget, I appreciate it anytime someone makes a donation in the first place. Believe me when I say it helps.
