Meeting the President of the United States is an incredible thing.

Meeting two presidents at the same time? Now, that's almost ridiculously cool.

If you pitch in $15 or whatever you can today, you'll be automatically entered to join President Obama and former President Clinton in New York City on June 4th -- we'll cover getting you there and we'll put you up in a hotel, even if you're from New York. [url]

These two presidents know better than anyone in the world that grassroots supporters are how you win elections.

That's why President Obama always wants to be able to meet you at events like this, and why President Clinton jumped at the chance.

This promises to be one amazing evening. Imagine how great it would be to be a fly on the wall when Presidents Obama and Clinton get together. Now imagine getting to be part of the conversation.

Enter today and you could win two tickets to be there with them in New York:

Seriously, good luck.
