Apparently the Obama campaign wasn’t selling enough nail polish and “My Two Dads Support Obama” onesies to raise money for its re-election efforts. Perhaps that’s why the Obama Victory Fund is now raffling off tickets to meet President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton at Obama’s Barack on Broadway fundraising event in June.
When a president comes out in support of same-sex marriage, finding people to put together a broadway show shouldn’t be too difficult.
More amusing than the Democrats needing to bring in Bill Clinton as an encouragement for donors is the fact that in order to be eligible to win ‘an evening with’ Bill Clinton, one has to be over the age of 16.
Of course, the Twittersphere doesn’t seem too excited by the prospect.
@DWStweets That sounds as interesting as watching grass grow in the yard.

Even supporters seem to be turning on the Democrats’ central campaign over its lack of support for the effort to recall Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
As chair, why aren't you doing more to help Wisconsin dems win the election to defeat Walker? If I'm wrong, then pls explain?@DWStweets
