Change hasn't been easy, and it hasn't always come quickly

But it is happening, and it's undeniable

We have seen 27 months of private-sector job growth The law now ensures

women can fight for an equal day's pay for an equal day's work Americans,

no matter who they love, can serve the country they love And about $X

billion in taxpayer subsidies that used to go to big banks are now helping

send more kids to college

I'm proud of that And a whole lot more

If you believe in what we're doing together, this week's critical

fundraising deadline is the time to do something about it

Chip in $X or whatever you can to help build the campaign we'll need to

win, and build on the progress we've

made

Your support will help make sure we spread the word to more voters about

what we've done together, and what we plan to do It will help fund the

organizing on the ground -- door to door, voter to voter That's how we won

in 2008

Winning this year will be even harder

I know that we can rise to the challenge But I need you with me

This dinner with Michelle may be the last she and I can do together with supporters during the campaign.

I'm lucky to have her -- she keeps me grounded even on the toughest days, and I'm thankful every day that she's by my side.

Your last chance to join Michelle and me at our next dinner with supporters is tomorrow night -- donate $X or whatever you can to be automatically entered:
