Let me tell you the favorite part of my job: It's every time I get a chance to introduce President Obama to a supporter who has stood with him for years. That moment never fails to be amazing. And I want you to get a chance to find out what that's like.
If you enter right now, we'll give you a chance to to fly out to San Francisco to meet President Obama at the end of the month. And you can be the one introducing the President of the United States to someone special.
Picture the look on your guest's face the moment President Obama shakes their hand (or gives them a fist bump). Pretty good, right?
Chip in $3 or whatever you can, and you'll be automatically entered for the chance to make it happen -- don't worry, the hotel and airfare for both of you are on us:

P.S. -- Seriously, if you win this, you'll create a moment that neither you nor the person you invite to join you will ever forget. Enter today.
President Obama sent an email urging supporters to give him a Congress he can work with by helping Democrats win in 2014. Here's what he had to say:
When the government shutdown ended 16 days ago, I made one thing clear to Republicans. If they want different leadership from the White House, they should go win an election.
I want to tell you what I meant by that.
A few extreme Republicans in Congress -- one faction of one party in one branch of government -- shouldn't hijack our economy in an attempt to force through a failed, partisan agenda. That's not how our system works -- and that's not a precedent we can abide.
If members of Congress and their constituents don't like a policy, they can argue for their side. They can debate other candidates, lay out their plan, and let the voters decide. That's how our elections -- and our democracy -- are supposed to work.
And if we want to make sure that Congress is focused on things that matter, we need more lawmakers who share that fundamental belief -- and we're going to need your support to make that happen.
Even though I won't be on a ballot again, I'm asking you to stand with me and support fellow Democrats who will. Help fix the broken system in Washington by electing a Congress that will keep our economy moving forward, not shut it down.
Commit to supporting Democrats in 2014 today:
In advance of the FEC's End of Quarter deadline, First Lady Michelle Obama sent the following email to supporters encouraging them to get involved.
You're never more important than you are at times like these, and here's why.
When Barack is in a tough negotiation with Republicans in Congress, he needs to know that his supporters are with him -- that you're ready to do whatever it takes.
So here's the thing: if you chip in to support Democrats before the critical fundraising deadline on Monday, you won't just be building an organization that can help elect Democrats who are going to support Barack. You're showing Barack that you're in his corner -- that you've got his back.
And right now, with all that's happening, that really matters.
Chip in $3 or more to support Barack and his Democratic allies:
P.S. -- So much is at stake right now. Please chip in before Monday at midnight.
Today, 50 years after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and proclaimed his dream for an equal America, we recognize the courage and strength that the leaders of the civil rights movement endured. Following the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, Democrats fought for the passage of the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights act, taking the biggest steps for equal rights in generations. Today, Democrats reflect on the past and promise to continue to fight every day for equality and opportunity for all, to make sure that we do not forget the legacy of Dr. King and his fellow civil rights leaders.
