Needed: An Anti-Obama Chicago Seven

A correspondent has forwarded an e-mail from David Plouffe stating that Barack Obama intends to make his nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention outdoors among 75,000 people (also see Rocky Mountain Newsarticle). Might not a creative counter-demonstration be appropriate?

>This was sent to a friend of mine on "Facebook" because she is a supporter!...

>I wanted you to be the first to hear the news.

>At the Democratic National Convention next month, we're going to kick off the general election with an event that opens up the political process the same way we've opened it up throughout this campaign.

>Barack has made it clear that this is your convention, not his.

>On Thursday, August 28th, he's scheduled to formally accept the Democratic nomination in a speech at the convention hall in front of the assembled delegates.

>Instead, Barack will leave the convention hall and join more than 75,000 people for a huge, free, open-air event where he will deliver his acceptance speech to the American people.

>It's going to be an amazing event, and Barack would like you to join him. Free tickets will become available as the date approaches, but we've reserved a special place for a few of the people who brought us this far and who continue to drive this campaign.

>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.

>Make a donation now and you could have a front row seat to history.

>We'll follow up with more details on this and other convention activities as we get closer, but please take a moment and pass this note to someone you know who might like to be there.

>It will be an event you'll never forget.

>Thank you,


David Plouffe
