I can't tell you how much it means to Barack to hear from supporters like you.
In just a few days, he turns 53 -- can you sign the birthday card we're putting together for him?
Thanks, Diane. It's a small thing, but this birthday card will definitely make him smile.
P.S. -- Democrats have a big fundraising deadline on the 31st -- can you chip in before then?

Ten years ago today, I got to tell my story to the country at the Democratic National Convention in Boston.
Back then, I was just a state senator from the South Side of Chicago, running to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate -- a guy with a funny name who no one had heard of.
Since then, a lot has changed. Our troops are coming home, we fought back from the most severe economic crisis since the Great Depression, and we extended health insurance for millions of Americans -- I guess we won a couple of pretty big elections, too.
But some fundamentals are as true now as they were then.
I still believe in the idea that we're all in this together. I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper, and that is what makes this country work.
I still believe that the politics of hope will trump the politics of cynicism -- because cynics didn't put a man on the moon, cynics didn't march on Washington to demand full citizenship for all Americans, and cynics have never cured a disease, started a business, or passed the New Deal.
We've shown that if we work together, we can move this country forward. I still believe that if we join together, we can make sure that all Americans have a road to opportunity -- no matter who they are, what they look like, or where they come from.
But we need people in Congress who share that belief, Diane. We need people who believe in something more than cynicism, gridlock, and dysfunction -- and we've got exactly 100 days left to work to elect people like that.
Chip in $10 or more to help elect people who will come to Washington to get things done:
This means that we're running out of time to build the organization we'll need to win across the country.
So your $10 means more now than it will as we get closer to Election Day. Pitch in now!
We need leaders in Congress who are willing to take action and create change. But between trying to sue the President, voting against Obamacare more than 50 times, and shutting down the government, House Republicans have shown us all what they're about -- which is not very much.
We're being outspent, but what else is new? If we want the next two years to be about progress, then we can't let that stand in our way.
Our fellow Democrats are ready to win, Diane -- but they'll need your help from now until the finish to put enough organizers on the ground to expand the vote, to keep our Senate majority, and pick up ground in the House.
We've only got 100 days to go. Chip in $10 or more, and let's elect Democrats:
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Democratic National Committee
P.S. -- Early voting starts even sooner! We need to make sure we have our plans in place now. Chip in.
