President Obama: He's Just Like Us!
Dinner with the president costs about the same as a decent cup of coffee, or at least it did for four presidential campaign donors last month. In September, President Obama's reelection campaign offered donors who gave $5 or more the chance to have dinner with the president. Later, they lowered the minimum donation to just $3.
At the end of October, four lucky winners sat down for dinner with a sleepy-looking president Obama, who told his guests that "it gives me a lot of energy to have dinner with you guys. This is as good as it gets." Here's what they got for their donations:
Look exciting? You can still donate for a chance to win in the next round of Dinner With Barack.
