Win A Trip To The National Convention
For most of us who are not among the thousands of delegates and alternates attending this year's Democratic National Convention in Denver, both the Obama Campaign and the Democratic National Committee are offering a chance to win a free trip to watch history being made in person. The Obama Campaign has posted this message:
If you make a donation in any amount before midnight on July 31st, you could be selected to travel to Denver for the last two days of the convention -- including the huge event at the open-air stadium on the final night. Ten supporters from all over the country will be selected to go Backstage with Barack. We'll provide airfare, accommodations, and two days of convention activities for each supporter and their guest -- including a private meeting with Barack before his historic speech. (Watch a video about it and sign-up on-line at this page.)
The DNC is asking people to make and submit a video (2 minutes or less) by August 1st telling why you are a Democrat in 2008. They'll select the five best and let us vote on the winner, who will get a day in the campaign press pool and a trip to the Denver Convention, where the video will be played. Read more at this page.
