The latest from Team W:
Dear Charlie,

Across America, volunteers for the President are sending tens of thousands of e-mails, recruiting new volunteers, writing letters to the editor, calling talk radio, and registering voters on behalf of the President's optimistic agenda.   As the National Political Director for the President's campaign, I'll be writing you over the next 5 months to ask for your participation in these critical re-election activities. 

You may have participated in many of them already.  I want you to get credit for it!  To make sure your efforts are recognized, I've created the Volunteer Leaderboard.
Beginning today, the Volunteer Leaderboard on will display the top national volunteers for each activity and your national volunteer ranking. Recruit enough volunteers, register enough voters, or write enough letters-to-the-editor, and you can reach the top of the board!
At the end of each month, I'll send a special campaign memento to the top 5 volunteers overall and top 5 volunteers in each category.

Reach for the top and take action on behalf of the President today!


Terry Nelson
National Political Director
I don't want to get my hopes up, but something tells me that using the words "President's optimistic agenda" indicates an unease within the campaign. I mean, you only need to call it "optimistic" if lots of people are calling it something else.

Personally, I think "optimistic" is a very good thing to call it, though I would append the phrase, "in the extreme."
