Hillary Rodham Clinton...Critical momentum

Yesterday, I asked you to make a statement, and you shouted from the rooftops.

I set an ambitious goal -- 30,000 contributions in 48 hours -- and you're almost there just one day later. So we're setting a new goal to reflect your commitment to this campaign: 50,000 contributions in 72 hours.

Your energy and enthusiasm match what I'm seeing on the campaign trail. Every day I talk to crowds of thousands of people in the March 4 states who are ready to get to work to solve America's biggest problems. Just like you and me, they want to win this race, and together, I know we will.

But first, let's make it to this big new goal: 50,000 contributions in 72 hours.

Contribute and help us win on March 4.

Together we are doing the hard work it's going to take to win. You are giving us the support, the resources, and the momentum we need at this critical moment, and I can't possibly thank you enough.


Hillary Rodham Clinton

Barack...Will you make a call for me?

I need you to make your voice heard today -- literally.

Over the past week, supporters have made more than 700,000 phone calls right from their own homes. They are reaching out to voters in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont before the March 4th primaries.

We've set a goal of 1 million calls to help Get Out The Vote for these critical contests -- will you help?

All you need is a few minutes, a phone line, and a passion for change. Start making calls right now:

Personal contact is the best way to grow this movement, and now you can make these connections right from your own home.

We've identified likely supporters in Ohio, Texas, Rhode Island, and Vermont, and with our online phonebanking tool, you can start calling them right away.

It couldn't be easier.

Simply choose the March 4th state you'd like to call, and you'll get a list of phone numbers and a simple script you can use to start growing this movement, one person at a time.

Take a few minutes to make a call, and I'm certain you'll want to make five more:

We asked a few of the thousands of supporters who have already started making calls what they wanted to tell you about the experience. Here's what some of them had to say:

I am a fairly new caller from Texas and I wanted to pass on a few thoughts. I called this afternoon to some fellow Texans (mostly from the San Antonio area) ... one woman was initially undecided but now is definitely supporting Senator Obama and so is her husband! It was talking to her one on one that made a big difference. I explained the primary and caucus deal to her (which she did not know) and she was very appreciative. Please let the other callers know that voters in Texas are very willing to hear our message...please keep calling Texas! There are a lot of undecided voters here. Thanks so much for all that YOU do!!
-- Bonnie from Texas

Just want to mention that I had been wavering between Barack and Hillary for a long time -- I'd even donated money to both campaigns. However, over many weeks I received calls from Sen. Obama's volunteers ... Those calls from the phone bank volunteers went a long way toward finally helping me make up my mind. Their sincerity, their passion, and their loyalty to Barack really impressed me (and I don't impress easily -- I spent 20 years as a TV producer in LA). I'm a woman who's Hillary's age and the last campaign I volunteered for was (oddly) Bill Clinton's first run. Anyway, I will do my best to duplicate the passion of the Obama supporters who called me, as I pick up the phone to talk to others.
-- DeeDee from Arizona

Make some phone calls right now, and see just what Bonnie and DeeDee are talking about:

You have helped accomplish some extraordinary things during this campaign.

But the most extraordinary things happen at the personal level, when you can make that personal connection to a voter and discover that you share a common vision of what ought to be.

Make a call and make that connection today.

Thank you,

Why Parents Drink

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up.

Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to 'Dad.'

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom, and you.
I have been finding real passion with Karen, and her is so nice. But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it's not only the passion...Dad she's pregnant.
Karen said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter.
We share a dream of having many more children. Karen has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Karen can get better.

She deserves it.

Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to
know your grandchildren.

Love, Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a report card that's in my center desk drawer.

I love you.

Call me when it's safe to come home.

*** Read the story then look at the pics. (No nudity in the pics, last two pics are bathing suite)****

GARRICK Jacobson was in custody at Surry Hills police station when he apparently discovered his girlfriend used to be a man.

Within hours of being released on bail, he went to her apartment and started "belting the hell" out of her, Downing Centre Local Court heard yesterday.

The two police officers who allegedly revealed the information about his then partner's past are now charged with breaching privacy laws.

In a rare prosecution under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act, Constables Tyrone Stacey and Brendan Ritson have pleaded not guilty to unlawful disclosure of information.

The offence is punishable by up to two years' jail.

The court heard Jacobson, 26, was held in custody on September 24, 2006, after being arrested for suspected theft.

Stacey allegedly used the police computer system to access information about Jacobson's then girlfriend, Brigitte Fell, revealing her gender as male.

Ritson, who was looking over his colleague's shoulder, allegedly shouted to Jacobson: "You're r . . . ing a bloke", the court has heard.

After Jacobson denied it, he was allegedly shown paperwork indicating her gender and told: "See, it's a guy."

As the officers defended the case yesterday, Ms Fell gave evidence that the incident "ruined my life".

She told the court she was born a male, undergoing gender reassignment surgery about 12 years ago "in London , and it cost a fortune".

Complete strangers subsequently told her it was "the best sex change we've ever seen", she said.

But Ms Fell did not share the information about her surgery with Jacobson, her boyfriend of about two months, because "he was temperamental enough".

Police were aware of other domestic violence incidents involving the pair in the two days prior to the assault, the court heard.

Ms Fell said she woke in the early hours of September 25 to find Jacobson in her Surry Hills apartment, threatening to kill her.

"Your f . . .ing mates the cops told me you're a man - is it true?" he allegedly said.

Ms Fell said Jacobson then punched her repeatedly in the face.

"He was belting the hell out of me," she told the court.

She said she suffered concussion after falling over the balcony of her loft bedroom and woke up "covered in blood".

"My whole face was broken," she said.

Ms Fell spent several days in hospital after the attack, for which Jacobson is currently awaiting sentence in the District Court.

Ms Fell said she told only three or four of her "dearest friends" about her surgery but some police officers knew of it because she had sought their help after previous violent incidents.

Black History for those looking for black facts

Re: Here comes the kitchen sink

-I got this email from Baracks crew this afternoon...I don't care who you vote for...but don't make it just like that 1st night on a date when everything goes perfect...he opens the door, puts your coat on, waits for you to order, doesn't try to get in your panties the first night...because trust could turn into hell date...this is serious people this isn't the student council at high school or the president of your local block club...this is real business. My comment are in green...and yes this is what I mailed back to them. and they better respond this time...if they want my vote...Hillary did.

This morning, the New York Times reported that Senator Clinton is launching what even her aides admit is a "kitchen sink" bombardment of negative attacks against Barack.

- and the new your times is always correct, right?

This is the same stale, Washington playbook that has driven so many Americans away from the political process.

-no what drove so many people away from politics is the lies that they told and the media coverage is really what drove people away from politics...but I beat they will never tell you that they are ones that control what people think...think about...just re-read your words you typed here.

Yesterday, in a speech on foreign policy, Senator Clinton misrepresented Barack's positions and compared him to George W. Bush.

She questioned his "wisdom to manage our foreign policy and safeguard our national security," despite her support for Bush's war in Iraq -- a war that Barack showed the judgment to oppose before it ever began.

-I don't see that as misrepresenting Baracks positions on foreign affairs and national security...I question Baracks too just like I question that guy that is our president now.

These negative tactics are exactly what voters have been rejecting this election season.

-that is the funny thing about getting people who will jump at the 1st person that they think is going to help Hilary says get my point.

While others focus on trying to tear us down, we will continue to highlight what is most inspiring and most important about this campaign -- you.

-nobody is trying to tear you down...Barack probably is doing a great job in the senate...I guess...the funny thing is I never heard of him until he announced that he was running for president...and I live in Gary, In...and I get nothing but Chicago news...We might as well vote for Rev. Meeks he can deliver a great speech too...I watch him on TV all the time...but not for president.

And while others may try to score cheap political points, millions of ordinary Americans are talking to their neighbors, knocking on doors, making phone calls, and turning out to primaries and caucuses in record numbers to support this movement for change.

-that is because Barack promised to give them free health care or fine them for not having it...they are going to need the Health care when some other country invades the US...because we just got our balls cut off.

Barack has organized and inspired what yesterday's Time magazine called a "new breed of grassroots campaign -- viral, internet-based, built from the ground up."

-so have I shouldve ran for President...oh doesn't pay enough! Who doesn't know web 2.0 aint rocket science...I think I will send this out to my mailing list.

Today, we are within reach of a goal that is unprecedented at this point in a presidential primary -- one million people giving to this campaign.

-if I really really focus on it...I could get 1 million people to give a dollar...esp with the amount of people that you encounter on the daily ever seen the free hugs campaign

Now is the moment to reject politics-as-usual. Show your support for a new kind of politics and a new kind of leadership.

-So the president is not going to be in Politics anymore...what is the new word?

Make a donation now and become one of the million who own a piece of this campaign:

-I got a want that

If you make a donation right now, you will also receive a "One of the Million" supporter t-shirt. Let your friends and family know that you support Barack Obama and are proud to be part of this movement.

- can't do that...because I don't support either Barack or Hillary 100%...even though I am a registered Dem...and I live in Indiana so I don't have to make a decision...and you people at the polls in Chicago committed fraud...

Thank you for your support,


David Plouffe
Campaign Manager
Obama for America
