WASHINGTON, DC – The emails from the Barack Obama reelect about winning a dinner with the president as a randomized reward for contributing to the campaign have gotten a bit more intense as time goes on, and the latest one, from the first lady, emphasizes that the winner of such a prize shouldn’t freak out about it.
“Just relax,” she advises.

Subject: These dinners
Not everyone knows how to prepare for a dinner like this. As someone who’s eaten countless meals with my husband, I want to tell you the one thing to do if you’re selected to join him…
Just relax. Barack wants this dinner to be fun, and he really loves getting to know supporters like you.
I hope you’ll take him up on it before Friday’s deadline.
Will you donate $3 or more today and be entered to have dinner with Barack?
These dinners mean a lot to Barack. They’re a chance for him to talk with a few of the people who are driving the campaign — and a chance for him to say thank you.
So come prepared to tell your story, and say whatever’s on your mind.
Don’t miss the opportunity to be there. Donate $3 today, before the September 30th deadline:
