Democratic Party Releases Latest Strategy Video

Author 2002

[Author's Note: The following is the contents of my latest communique from the]

I was in North Carolina with Barack yesterday -- getting ready for tonight's debate -- and I took a break to record a short strategy update for you.

Yesterday, millions of Americans learned the details about John McCain, his political patron Charles Keating, and their role in the last major financial crisis and taxpayer-financed bailout of our time.

The truth makes it even clearer why a senior McCain adviser admitted to a reporter, "If we keep talking about the economic crisis, we're going to lose."

But it's not enough to merely inform voters -- we've got to turn them out to vote.

You can make a huge difference by making a short trip to a key battleground state where the race is neck-and-neck -- or by making phone calls to undecided voters in battleground states.

Watch our latest strategy update video and consider giving a day of your time to help turn out the vote in the crucial four days leading up to the election.

While we're focused on persuading and turning out voters, John McCain has given up talking about the issues that are central to this election -- especially the economy. Instead, he's running the most negative presidential campaign in modern history.

In the past few days, we've seen the beginning of a major offensive that McCain is about to launch, filled with distortions, personal attacks, and flat-out lies about Barack.

But you can help fight back by getting involved at the grassroots level -- knocking on doors, making phone calls, and talking to undecided voters about what really matters in this election.

Commit at least one day to make sure Barack gets the votes we need to win:

Thanks for everything you're doing,


David Plouffe
Campaign Manager
Obama for America
