Sign Our Birthday Card! . . . Oh, by the Way, Where Do You Vote?


The Obama campaign would like you to sign a birthday card for Vice President Joe Biden:

Today is Joe Biden’s birthday.

We’ve put together a card for him — and hundreds of thousands of supporters have already added their names and their good wishes. Joe’s going to love reading these.

So if you haven’t already, you should add your name — and a note, if you want — before we deliver the card to the Vice President:

Thank you,


Jim Messina

Campaign Manager

Obama for America

Oh, by the way, at the link they would like your e-mail, name, and zip code . . . almost as if their motive isn’t simply the thoughtful gesture to offer warm birthday wishes but to gather updated location information about their e-mailing list to assist with get-out-the-vote efforts.
