I wasn't a math major or anything, but I know my way around a calculator.

Your chances of winning Dinner with Barack are MUCH better than you might think.

This isn't some super-mega-never-gonna-win lottery. It's not like getting struck by lightning or eaten by a bear -- or whatever people say when they're trying to get across that something is really, really rare.

Every supporter who enters has a decent shot. It only takes a minute, so get your name in right now before the contest ends on Tuesday:

Case in point: One campaign staff member who donates regularly was randomly selected. Sadly for him and good for you -- he's not eligible to win.

I'll be in touch.

Look. It's great that three of you lucky ducks will get to bring a guest to meet President Obama and the First Lady for dinner -- and get flown out and put up in a hotel to do it.

But the only contest I'm worried about is that big one, coming up on November 6th, just over 19 weeks from today.

We have an important FEC fundraising deadline coming up this Saturday, and we have to blow it out of the water to be able to do what we need to do out there in the states.

Volunteers are counting on us. Hundreds of thousands of other supporters are counting on us. And yes, the President's waiting to see what happens, too.

So go ahead, enter for that chance to join the Leader of the Free World and his charming wife for dinner move fast -- the contest ends Tuesday .

But don't forget, you're also helping build the very core of this organization when you do:

So the President and the First Lady are going to be sitting down with a

couple supporters for dinner soon. Right off the bat, I know what you might

be thinking:

All these dinners, all these contests. Barack, Michelle, George Clooney,

President Clinton. What's the deal?

Glad you asked. This campaign holds these drawings and events for a

very good reason, and it's not because we want to show off how cool

the President and First Lady are.

When you make a donation of $X or whatever it is you're able to chip in,

you're not just automatically entering for the chance to be at one of these

admittedly pretty cool get-togethers with the President and some of his

more high-profile supporters.

That donation is put to work, keeping offices and volunteers running in

key states. It's helping to hire organizers on the ground, and printing the

literature that they'll put in the hands of voters.

Of course, all that's not as sexy as the idea of a nice meal with your favorite

star, but it happens to be what's going to win this thing for us.

Get in on that by pitching in here. And move fast -- the contest ends on

Tuesday:

Oh, and you'll also be automatically entered for the chance to have dinner

with the President and First Lady of the United States -- which, you know,

isn't bad either.

Thanks,

--

One of my responsibilities as chief operating officer of this

campaign is to sign off on travel costs -- so I see every

expense for a hotel room or plane ticket.

If you win Dinner with Barack, I'll be the one approving

your flight arrangements from your town to your dinner with

the President and First Lady.

Managing the logistics of these dinners is tough, but we do

it because giving supporters a seat at the table --

literally -- is a huge priority for this campaign. You guys

are out there, knocking on doors, making calls, and working

hard to re-elect the President. You deserve a thank you.

Plus, the donations you chip in make a huge difference in

getting us ready for the long haul to November.

The contest ends Tuesday -- so donate $X or whatever you

can right now to be automatically entered for a chance to

join the President and First Lady for dinner:

And don't forget -- I see the hotel bills, too, so don't

break in to that minibar.

So the President and the First Lady are going to be sitting down with a

couple supporters for dinner soon. Right off the bat, I know what you might

be thinking:

All these dinners, all these contests. Barack, Michelle, George Clooney,

President Clinton. What's the deal?

Glad you asked. This campaign holds these drawings and events for a

very good reason, and it's not because we want to show off how cool

the President and First Lady are.

When you make a donation of $X or whatever it is you're able to chip in,

you're not just automatically entering for the chance to be at one of these

admittedly pretty cool get-togethers with the President and some of his

more high-profile supporters.

That donation is put to work, keeping offices and volunteers running in

key states. It's helping to hire organizers on the ground, and printing the

literature that they'll put in the hands of voters.

Of course, all that's not as sexy as the idea of a nice meal with your favorite

star, but it happens to be what's going to win this thing for us.

Get in on that by pitching in here. And move fast -- the contest ends on

Tuesday:
