Ante Upped on ‘Win Dinner With President Obama’ Contest

A while back I got an email urging me to donate at least $5 to President Obama’s re-election campaign, and if so I’d be registered to win a dinner with him — which isn’t bad since that’s something that usually costs in the $38,500 range. Sure, the dinner is a fundraiser, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it can’t **take place at the White House (**Important: Put your profession down as “Wall Street banker” or “tech exec”).

Against all instinct, I held off, and thank goodness, because the deal has now been sweetened. I just got this teaser email:

Doug —

I just got an unexpected update about the “Dinner with Barack” contest we kicked off last week that I think you’ll want to hear.

The President wanted to tell you the news himself, so he recorded a short video with the new details.

I can’t tell you anything more than that — but let’s just say if you haven’t yet thrown your name in the hat for this thing, I have a feeling this announcement might change that.

Who is the deal sweetener? Lady Gaga? J-Lo? Tom Hanks?

The Conductor of the Train to the Future? I’ve, uh, got other plans that night…

If they’d have said the First Lady would also be attending and serving French fries and fat cakes she brought back from her “promoting healthy eating” tour of Botswana, Obama’s campaign might have my check by now.
