In an e-mail sent to supporters, campaign manager David Plouffe reveals today that Barack Obama will forego the usual convention hall acceptance speech for an open-air event in Denver.
“Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his.”
Oh. I was guessing the stunning visuals.
“It’s going to be an amazing event, and Barack would like you to join him.”
“If you make a donation of $5 or more between now and midnight on July 31st, you could be one of 10 supporters chosen to fly to Denver and spend two days and nights at the convention, meet Barack backstage, and watch his acceptance speech in person. Each of the ten supporters who are selected will be able to bring one guest to join them.”
Aha. Funny, I don’t remember an e-mail going out about this. But it’s your convention, not Barack’s!
