Latest Obama Fund-Raising Gimmick: Their 20th Anniversary


How does the leader of the free world celebrate 20 years of marriage?

By asking for money, of course.

President Obama and the first lady, Michelle Obama, were married 20 years ago on Wednesday. They will celebrate with hundreds of their pals in Denver as Mr. Obama faces Mitt Romney in the first presidential debate.

Meanwhile, Mr. Obama's good friend David Axelrod is circulating an anniversary card among the couple's closest friends - and millions of others.

In fact, Mr. Axelrod has a suggestion for friends who don't quite know what to get the couple for their big day.

“Let's take a moment to show Barack and Michelle that we wish them well in life, not just in politics,” Mr. Axelrod said, providing a link to enter a name (and e-mail address) at the campaign's Web site. “Add your name to the card today.”

Oh, and by the way, Mr. Axelrod adds: “More than 3 mil lion people like you power this campaign. If you can, please donate today.”
