Barack Obama is Getting Ready to Speak, But First Thank You and Also Could You Donate Money?


maybe one day

Barack Obama is set to accept his nomination at the Democratic National Convention shortly after 10:00pm ET tonight. So he made one last fundraising pitch before taking the stage, since he probably won't make one on the stage itself:

Edward —
Before I go on stage to accept the nomination, there's one thing I need to say: Thank you.

It's because you've got my back that I'm here. And if we win this, it will be because of you, too.

Can you pitch in $3 right now?
… I can't tell you how grateful I am.


P.S.—This is my last campaign, and knowing you're with me means everything. I can't do this without you.

I'd like to think my work keeping all these politicians honest is all the help they need, or something. You're welcome nonetheless, Mr. President.
