Well, This is a Turn-off...

I'm getting e'mails from Obama "himself." His marketing team should really re-consider this campaign*.

*NOTE: I haven't gotten any of these from the McCain/Palin Party, so I have no idea what, if anything, they are sending out:



Dear Samantha,

If your family isn't already supporting Barack, it's time for you to have "The Talk."

With so many rumors and misperceptions out there, it's incredibly important that you sit down with parents or other family members. Tell them who Barack is, what he stands for, and why you're supporting him.

You may be the only person who can convince them.

But it can be difficult to bring up the subject, so here are a few tips:
Send an email. You can scroll down for some talking points, but feel free to add your personal touch.
Breaking the ice can be hard. Start by asking if they saw the debate on Tuesday and what they thought about it.
Have some information handy. We have one-page summaries of Barack's positions on various issues. Look for the issues you know are important to your family.
Share Barack's speech from the Democratic National Convention or Meet Barack, a video about who Barack Obama is, where he comes from, and what his values are.
For more resources, and to share your story about talking to family members, go to:

http://my.barackobama.com/thetalk

Earlier this year, as one national leader after another announced support for Barack, there was a common refrain -- they said their kids persuaded them that Barack was the right candidate to bring about real change.

Family members talking to one another about Barack is one of the ways this movement has grown so large. Even if your parents are already convinced, talk to your grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

There are only 25 days until Election Day. So have The Talk, and do it soon. Then tell us how it went, and what advice you would offer fellow supporters.

Thanks for all that you're doing,

Obama for America

Hi,

I've been thinking a lot about the election and how important it is to our family.

I've decided to support Barack Obama, and wanted to let you know why.

There are many rumors floating around out there, so here's some information about Barack's positions on things I know are important to you:

-- Economy: http://my.barackobama.com/EconomyFlyer

-- Health Care: http://my.barackobama.com/HealthcareFlyer

-- Education: http://my.barackobama.com/EducationFlyer

This is probably going to be the most important election in my lifetime, and it's something I strongly believe in. So let's talk about it. Ask me anything.

Thanks.
