If you donate to the Obama campaign, you are invited to send this email around to a bunch of friends:
I don't usually send these emails, but I just made a donation to Barack Obama's campaign and I want to invite you to join me.
It's clear that Senator Clinton wants to continue an increasingly desperate, increasingly negative -- and increasingly expensive -- campaign to tear us down. That's her decision. But it's not stopping John McCain from going on the offensive.
Right now, it's essential for every single supporter of Barack Obama to step up and help fight this two-front battle. In the face of attacks from Hillary Clinton and John McCain, we need to be ready to take them on.
Join me in supporting the campaign by making a donation now.
Now, I am indeed hoping that Obama refreshes and expands his message a bit, as the pundits suggest he should. On the other hand, the skewed diatribes run out of the Clinton campaign are beginning to grate on me almost as much as the smug or petulant missives of GWB.
