The end of the war in Iraq

Democrats
Automat --

On Friday, the President announced that, by the end of the year, all servicemen and women in Iraq will be home. The war in Iraq will be over.

Watch the President's announcement -- then share this good news:


As we reflect on how we arrived here, it's a time to honor the men and women who served in Iraq during the last eight years -- and be proud of our president, who kept his commitment to bring this war to an end.

Thanks,

Patrick

My father

Automat --

I knew that when my father left the White House 10 years ago, he was not going to stop working to give people the opportunities, health, and tools necessary to live a better life.

His vision of a more equal and prosperous world motivated his decision to run for his first public office (and all thereafter). It is that same force that motivates his work with the Clinton Foundation today.

As we celebrate 10 years of my father's foundation this year, we're looking to the future, and asking friends and allies to be part of creating that future.

Please share your thoughts on what challenges you think the Clinton Foundation should tackle in the next 10 years -- and please let my father know that you will stand with him in this work.

I recently had the honor of attending the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) -- an annual meeting he organizes to inspire, connect, and empower a community of global leaders to forge solutions to the world's most pressing challenges.

The experience was invigorating, but it is the action that comes out of these meetings that is truly inspiring. Since the first meeting in 2005, members have made more than 2,000 commitments, which have already improved the lives of 300 million people in more than 180 countries.

That same commitment to meaningful and sustainable results can be seen in the remarkable work of the Clinton Foundation over the past decade -- transforming lives by giving people across the globe the tools they need to create better lives for themselves and their communities:

-- 4 million people in 70 countries are benefiting from lifesaving HIV/AIDS treatments at reduced prices;
-- 26,000 entrepreneurs, small business owners, and smallholder farmers are improving their families' livelihoods and their communities;
-- 30 million kids in the United States and Latin America are receiving more nutritious meals in schools; and
-- 4.5 million trees have been planted in Malawi and Rwanda, benefiting over 8,000 farmers.

I am very proud of the incredible work my father's foundation does -- every day, all year long, in every corner of the globe -- to change the course of people's lives for the better.

He inspires so many of us; he inspires me every day. So, let's give a little inspiration back as he embarks on his next 10 years of service to our global community.

Please send your thoughts about where the Clinton Foundation should go in the future -- and please let my father know that we'll stand with him as he continues his work around the world:

Thank you,

Chelsea Clinton

Test your knowledge: Take the Mitt quiz

Democrats
Automat --

The Mitt Romney who's running for the Republican presidential nomination has said he would sign legislation to end Medicare as we know it, slash Social Security, and repeal health care reform as one of his first acts in office.

But over the years, Mitt Romney has supported expanding access to health care, protecting a woman's right to choose, and investing in infrastructure -- just like the kind in the Recovery Act that brought us back from the brink of a depression.

It's one thing for a politician's positions to evolve over time. It's another to flip back and forth over the course of a 20-year political career based on what office you're running for and where.

And that's exactly what Romney has shown: He has no core convictions or values. With him, it's all just politics.

It makes you wonder -- which Mitt would we get in the White House?

And which Mitt would we be relying on to make decisions on behalf of millions of Americans, during a crisis, or as commander in chief?

So we took a hard look at his record, everywhere he's stood on the issues, and put it all together in the form of a new site, WhichMitt.com.

We can't predict exactly how Mitt would govern as president, but you can take the quiz to test how well you know his track record to get an idea -- and perhaps learn a little more about the man some are calling the Republican front-runner.

Which Mitt do you know?

The answer may surprise you:

Thanks,

P.S. -- After you check out the quiz, pass this note on to your friends and family, and challenge them to beat your score.

Your representative will see this one

Democrats
Automat --

It's been nearly a month since President Obama proposed his plan to get Americans working again and lower the deficit. But House Republicans, led by Majority Leader Eric Cantor, are actually bragging that they'll never give it a vote.

That's not leadership; it's politics at its lowest.

The President was in Dallas yesterday urging Americans who support the American Jobs Act to demand that Congress pass it now. You can join him by contacting your lawmakers on their Twitter accounts or writing a letter to your local newspaper editor today.

If you're on Twitter, use the campaign's brand new tool to find your member of Congress and Tweet for jobs.

Here's the beauty of Twitter: Many members of Congress personally monitor their accounts and receive the messages people send them. So if you use Twitter to hold them accountable and demand they pass this bill, they'll see it -- and because messages on Twitter are public, so will everyone else, from reporters to other constituents.

So Tweet for jobs now:

http://my.democrats.org/Tweet-For-Jobs

Even if you don't use Twitter, you can help by writing the editor of your local paper. Reporters will see that letter, too, as well as fellow voters in your community, and congressional staff will see it when they monitor their daily press clips. You can even use the campaign's letter-to-the-editor tool to get facts about the American Jobs Act and tips about getting a letter published so other readers will see it.

Get started on one now:

http://my.democrats.org/Letters-For-Jobs

The American Jobs Act is not a controversial bill.

If passed, it would put us on a path to strengthening our community colleges and rebuilding our roads and bridges. It would make sure teachers and firefighters can keep their jobs, and it would all be fully paid for.

Yet House Republicans just don't seem to care whether it's good policy. As one Republican staffer said, they won't hand the President a win right now -- even if that means hurting the economy even more. If the only way to take away Barack Obama's job is to take away yours, they'll do it.

But this isn't about winning or losing -- it's about creating jobs.

If they keep acting like that, we'll work to make sure it costs them theirs, too. Tweet for jobs today:

http://my.democrats.org/Tweet-For-Jobs

Or write a letter to the editor:

Patrick
