Deadline: Tomorrow

The Democratic Party
automat --

Over the last week this race has been transformed.

Barack named Joe Biden as his running mate, and they accepted the Democratic nomination at our historic open convention in Denver.

Our team is complete, and our movement is growing rapidly. But now we are facing our first major challenge together.

The August financial reporting deadline is tomorrow at midnight, and we have an opportunity to show that a campaign funded by ordinary people can go toe-to-toe with the Washington lobbyists and special interests lined up behind John McCain and the Republican Party.

Make a donation of $15 or more before midnight tomorrow, and you'll receive a first edition Obama-Biden car magnet.

Thanks,

Obama for America

What I saw last night

automat --

The first time I ever heard Barack speak was at a community meeting on the South Side of Chicago.

He won me over with the same message that inspired millions last night.

He told people who'd been knocked down that, despite everything, we need to set our sights on a better place around the bend -- and that it's up to each one of us to fight for it.

That's where you come in.

More than two million supporters already own a piece of this extraordinary campaign. Will you join them by making your first donation right now?

Make a donation of $5 or more today:

Now that the convention is over, time will fly between now and Election Day.

And the next two days are especially important.

The August fundraising deadline is this Sunday at midnight, and we can prove that a campaign funded by grassroots supporters can compete with John McCain and the Republicans.

The past four days in Denver -- and the amazing event last night -- showed the country that Americans are ready for change.

Now it's up to each of us to make it happen.

Thanks for everything you're doing,

Michelle

You made it happen

automat --

This night could not have happened 40 years ago -- or even 4 years ago.

And it could not have happened without you.

You believed, against the odds, that change was possible. I felt your passion here tonight, and I know it was shared by millions of Americans who are building this movement all across the country.

Tonight is your night. But tonight is just the beginning.

The general election is going to be faster and tougher than anything we've faced so far. And our opponents will do everything they can to tear us down.

I need your support more than ever.

Our party is united. Our purpose is clear. And our goal is in sight.

Thank you for everything you've done,

Front row

The Democratic Party
automat --

When Barack takes the stage tonight, he'll look out at delegates from every corner of the country and tens of thousands of ordinary people who are here to be part of this historic moment.

But in the very first row he'll see a group of people who are there because they took ownership of the political process. Some gave just five dollars.

They're folks just like you, and they represent more than two million Americans who own a piece of this campaign. Our success would not have been possible without so many people answering the call by giving whatever they can afford.

On this final day before Barack formally accepts the Democratic nomination, please celebrate the moment and lay the foundation for our victory in November by making a donation of $5 or more now:

https://donate.barackobama.com/frontrow

Barack is ready. The crowd filling this stadium at this very moment is ready. And America is ready for the change we need.

It's within your grasp to make that happen.

Thank you,

It's official

automat --

Yesterday, Barack Obama was officially nominated as the Democratic candidate for president of the United States.

And last night, I accepted our party's nomination for vice president.

I made my case to everyone watching -- Barack Obama will secure America at home and restore our reputation abroad. And John McCain will only extend the failed policies of George Bush.

But this isn't my moment. It's all of ours.

And the fight ahead will be like nothing you've ever seen.

The stakes couldn't be higher, and Barack and I need your help right now.

Democrats, our moment is now

The Democratic Party
automat --

Find or host an event near youWhat an amazing convention this has been already -- and how inspiring it is to see Democrats from all 50 states united as one party.

As Hillary Clinton pointed out in a rousing call to action last night, "We are on the same team, and none of us can afford to sit on the sidelines."

Barack and Joe are going to defeat John McCain and transform Washington.

But there's no way they can do it alone.

We all need to reach out to our friends, family, and neighbors and work to get every single vote we can -- even in places where Democrats haven't competed in a generation.

Our moment is now -- sign up to get involved.

Tomorrow night, people all over America will come together at Convention Watch Parties to see Barack accept the Democratic nomination.

These parties are a great opportunity to come together with fellow supporters, watch Barack's speech, and plan for the next 10 weeks. This Labor Day Weekend, we're going to kick off the biggest voter registration drive in the history of politics.

Sign up for a Convention Watch Party and find Weekend of Action events in your community:

http://my.barackobama.com/organizeforchange

Millions of Americans are tuning in to the convention this week and paying attention to this election for the first time.

As Democrats, we need to seize this opportunity to stand united and let them know what is at stake.

John McCain has voted with George Bush 95% of the time and pledged to continue the same disastrous policies that have damaged our economy, ruined our reputation in the world, and left millions of middle-class families without jobs and health care.

We need to register new voters, reach out to people who haven't voted in years, and work to get out the vote like never before.

Attend a Convention Watch Party and host or sign up for a Weekend of Action event near you.

Our party has never been stronger. Let's keep this momentum going through November.

Thanks,

Howard Dean

Did you see Michelle?

The Democratic Party
automat --

I am so lucky to be married to the woman who delivered that speech last night.

Michelle was electrifying, inspiring, and absolutely magnificent. I get a lot of credit for the speech I gave at the 2004 convention -- but I think she may have me beat.

You have to see it to believe it.

And make sure to forward this email to your friends and family -- they'll want to see it too.

Watch Michelle's Speech


You really don't want to miss this.

And I'm not just saying that because she's my wife -- I truly believe it was the best speech of the campaign so far.

Behind the scenes in Denver

The Democratic Party
automat --

My mom, the girls, and I left home in Chicago and got to Denver yesterday. What a beautiful city!

The convention started this morning, and everyone here is getting ready for the big week.

All the work you've done is at the heart of what's happening here, and our team filmed a short video to give you a look behind the scenes at the convention center.

Take a minute to check out the video and share it with your friends:


This week, folks from across the country will get to know Barack and our family a little better. Tonight I'm giving a speech at the convention, and I'm planning to share a few stories about the Barack I know -- the husband, the father, and the man who shares my dreams for our girls, for this country, and for our future.

Before my speech, we're also going to show a video introducing our family to families across the country. Make sure to turn on your TV at 10:30 p.m. EDT (8:30 p.m. MDT) to see it, or you can watch it at www.BarackObama.com.

This is such an important moment, and I hope you'll join me by tuning into the convention tonight and all week long.

Thanks,

Michelle

Our message of change

The Democratic Party
automat --

The Democratic convention starts today, and my new running mate Joe Biden and I recorded a message about what we all need to do next.

When we started this campaign, very few people thought we would make it this far.

But we put our faith in the power of ordinary supporters like you coming together and building a movement for change from the bottom up. And that's exactly why we're here.

I'd like you to watch this special message -- and I have a request.

We have our team, and this week the eyes of the entire country will be on our movement. Now is the time to take the next step and own a piece of this campaign.

Watch our video message and make a donation of $5 or more today:

Watch the video

Over the next four days, the Democratic convention will define what change means and highlight our differences with John McCain to every voter who's tuning in.

We'll show the change we will be bringing the country on the economy, health care, energy, foreign policy, and the issues that affect all Americans.

But make no mistake about what we're up against. John McCain has embraced the same old politics of fear, division, and Karl Rove-style attacks -- which makes sense coming from someone who's voted with George Bush literally 95% of the time.

From the very beginning, this campaign has been in your hands. Now more than ever, we're counting on you to see it through.

Hello

The Democratic Party
automat --

The past two days have been truly extraordinary. I received such a warm welcome as the newest member of the Obama campaign.

Now that our team is complete, it's time for our party to unite -- as Democrats, as voters, and as Americans committed to change.

I recorded a short video message about what we need to do in the weeks ahead, and how I plan to help.

Please take a minute to watch the video and join the movement:


Barack has built an incredible movement over the past 19 months, and I'm so honored to be part of it.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be rolling up my sleeves and joining the work that thousands of people all across the country are already doing -- reaching out day after day in neighborhoods and communities, connecting with people who are hungry for the change we need.

This is no ordinary time, and this is no ordinary election. I plan to do everything I can to help Barack take back the White House.

I don't need to tell you that John McCain will just bring us another four years of the same. You can't change America when you supported George Bush's policies 95% of the time.

Barack has the vision and the courage to bring real change to Washington. But even he can't do this alone.

Please watch this video and join this incredible movement:

How many houses?

The Democratic Party
automat --

John McCain has a lot of houses. How many?

He can't keep track.

Yesterday, when asked by reporters how many homes he owns, McCain responded, "I think -- I'll have my staff get to you."

This is the latest in a string of striking and revealing comments by McCain. Recently he said that from his perspective "the fundamentals of our economy are strong" right now, then he said that millionaires are not rich as long as they're making less than $5 million a year.

Today, the Obama campaign launched a television ad exposing just how out-of-touch McCain is with the realities American families face.

Watch the ad and write a letter to your local newspaper about John McCain's out-of-touch economic policies:

Video: Seven houses ad

In an economy where millions of Americans are sinking under high mortgages and rising gas prices, we can't afford another president who doesn't get it.

In John McCain's world, the limits on campaign contributions should rise with inflation, but the minimum wage should not. In fact, he believes there shouldn't be any increase at all in the minimum wage.

How can he help the middle class when he doesn't know who they are? And how can he fix the economy if he doesn't know it's broken?

McCain's money may have bought him a lot of houses, but there's one house we can't afford to let McCain add to his list: the White House. Not on our watch.

Please watch the Obama campaign's ad and write a letter to your local papers about how out-of-touch John McCain is with economic realities:
