Barack Obama is offering donors that contribute to his campaign before Wednesday, June 13 the opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win a seat with him at an “intimate dinner for five.”

The interesting thing about this contest is that it’s seemingly open-ended as far as contributions go — the four winners could have donated $5 or $2300.

It’s refreshing to see Barack Obama reaching out to his supporters this way, and it seems like sound strategy. After all, Obama’s Q1 fundraising did come from almost double the number of sources as Hillary Clinton’s, mostly due to internet campaigning.

I just wonder if Mr. Obama is planning on picking up the check at the end of the night. And if he expects anything for it.
