Yes We Can

First Americans can make the difference

Obama for America


First Americans have been stepping up across the nation to help bring the change we need.

They know Barack Obama wants tribal nations to be a part of shaping our shared future -- to have a voice in rebuilding our economy, responsibly ending the war in Iraq, and changing the way business is done in Washington.

With only days left until Election Day, your support is more important than ever.

We've put together a video about First Americans getting involved to help Barack.

Watch the video, then sign up to help in the final push.

Watch the video and get involved

Everything will come down to these last few days. No matter what anyone says, this election will be decided on the ground by dedicated people helping to get out the vote.

We're almost there. And we need you to take us over the finish line.

Watch the video and take action to make sure we bring the change we need:

Call African American Voters in a swing state

Rudolf J. --

My wife Jill is an extraordinary woman.

Lately, she's been teaching school during the week and joining me on the campaign trail on the weekends. But this week, she also found some time to go to campaign headquarters and call voters in crucial battleground states.

Jill has always had a great time talking to potential supporters, and I'm sure her calls brought Barack and me a few votes closer to victory.

Can you do the same? Today you have the opportunity to reach out to African American voters in Indiana, an important constituency that could help decide the outcome of this election.

Get your list of voters right now.

Watch this video of my wife making calls, see how easy it is, and then join her and tens of thousands of volunteers across the country by making calls from your own home.

Watch the video and call voters


With the conventions and the debates behind us, this election is now in your hands.

Reaching out to swing voters by making these calls is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference right now.

No matter how many rallies Barack and I hold or speeches we give, supporters like you talking to fellow voters one-on-one is the way we're going to win this election.

Get your list of supporters today and give them a call right from your own home:

Get your list of voters right now.

Thanks for everything you're doing,

Joe

P.S. -- Can't make calls this weekend? Sign up to make calls for the campaign later this week:

In case you missed it

Obama for America

Rudolf J. --

We put together an ad today that captures Barack's victory in last night's debate in 30 seconds.

Take a look and make a donation of $100 or more to get it on the air for those who may have missed it:

Watch the ad and make a donation

After his erratic and reckless response to the economic crisis, McCain needed a game-changer last night to restore his campaign. He didn't even come close.

In a CBS News poll, uncommitted voters see Barack as the debate winner. When it comes to the economy, 66% say Barack would make the right decisions versus 42% for McCain.

The CNN poll results were also clear:

Who did the best job tonight?
Barack: 51
McCain: 38

Who would better handle Iraq?
Barack: 52
McCain: 47

Who would better handle the economy?
Barack: 58
McCain: 37

These are not the kind of reviews John McCain needed, but they show that Barack is offering the change we need.

Barack broke through last night with voters who were watching -- but we need to get the word out to the millions who didn't tune in.

Will you watch our latest ad and make a donation of $100 or more to show your support?

Share your small business story

Obama for America
Write a letter to the editor

Barack Obama knows that small businesses are the key to creating jobs and rebuilding our economy from the bottom up.

That's why he put forward a plan to cut or freeze taxes on 99% of small businesses, and provide relief for rapidly rising health care and energy costs. It's why he'll cut taxes on 95% of middle-class families -- because when they do better, you do better.

But John McCain is using lies and attacks to mislead voters about Barack's plans to bring the change we need.

With only 16 days until Election Day, we need supporters like you to make sure that people know the truth.

Use our Letter to the Editor tool to write a letter to your local paper.

We've made it easy. We provide you with a list of local papers, and some important background on the issues to help you get started.

We'll even send the letters to the papers for you.

Eight years of Bush-McCain policies have thrown us into the most profound economic crisis since the Great Depression.

Middle-class families are fighting harder than ever to fulfill the American promise. It's essential that your voice is heard in this election. And it's as simple as telling your own story.

You can spread the word about Barack's message for rebuilding our economy from the bottom up, and remind everyone that this is about change versus four more years of the same.

Write a letter to the editor of your local paper today:

http://my.barackobama.com/SBletter

With your help, we can rebuild our economy, and change America for the better.

Thanks,

Small Business for Obama

Your ticket to history

Obama for America

Your ticket to history

Rudolf --

Barack Obama will be sworn in as President of the United States of America on January 20th, 2009.

It will be an unprecedented event in the history of our country, and hundreds of thousands of people will come together in Washington, D.C. to share the moment.

Supporters like you made this happen. You know that real change comes from the bottom up, not from the top down, and Barack and Joe want you to join them on this historic day. They want to start off this administration with the people who worked so hard and will continue to fight for change with them.

Between now and January 8th, 10 supporters and their guests will be selected to join the Inaugural activities.

If you make a donation -- in any amount -- to make the Inauguration a success, you and a guest could be flown to Washington, D.C., put up in a hotel, and be there as Barack is sworn in as the 44th President.

Will you make a donation of $100 or more right now? You and a guest could receive your ticket to history.

Unlike past inaugurations, this year's event will not be paid for by Washington lobbyists or corporations.

This campaign was funded by 4 million ordinary people giving only what they could afford, and Barack and Joe are counting on you again. Help start this administration off right -- independent of the special interest donors who have shaped Washington for too long.

This Inauguration will be open to as many Americans as possible. We'll all come together to celebrate the hope and optimism that define this movement for change.

But you could be one of 10 selected to join us in Washington for all Inaugural events. Any donation you make between now and January 8th counts -- whatever you can afford.

Show your support for a different kind of politics and a different kind of inauguration with a donation of $100 or more today:

https://donate.pic2009.org/tickettohistory

The Inauguration will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. I hope you can join us.

Thank you,

David
