Although I’ve been invited so several, I’ve never been to a political fundraiser before – except as a journalist reporting on the event. But if more fundraisers were like Barack Obama’s fundraiser in NYC this Thursday, I’d be MUCH more likely to go.

The campaign is having a “pub crawl.” Starting at 7 p.m. Obama supporters will drink their livers out and wander from one bar in the Village to another. They ask that supporters make a minimum donation to the Obama campaign in order to recieve “a sweet Obama button.”
