Email from Bill Clinton -- Irrelevant ( you'll love the picture


Forget about everything you've done so far. Now is the time to do more. Forget about every doubt you've ever had. This is the moment to act with absolute confidence and conviction.

We cannot continue in the same direction that we have been going for these last five and a half years. The extreme ideological approach of the Republican leadership in Washington is spectacularly ill-suited to face the challenges of today and tomorrow. We need a Democratic majority to take us in a new direction.

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is working to elect the Democratic candidates who will do just that. The DCCC is the organization that knows best where to spend every dollar to win back the House.

I'm doing everything I can to help the DCCC in these last 8 days. They asked me to help raise an additional $2 million to fully fund the unexpected number of competitive campaigns that are now neck-in-neck in the polls. I want to thank you for recent support -- it has made this moment possible. But, in these final days, we need to make sure we can fund all of our Democratic House candidates.

Make an additional secure 3-to-1 matched online contribution of $25, $50 or more to the DCCC today to make certain no candidate loses for lack of resources.

It's as simple as this: a small group of the Republican Party controls Washington. It is the most right-wing, radical, special-interest-dominated segment of their party.

These people believe they already have all the answers, and, therefore, differences of opinions are irrelevant. That is why they govern and campaign on an ethos of divide and conquer. For them, evidence and compromise are anathema. They deny inconvenient facts when those facts contradict their policies, and their political objectives.

Look at their "stay the course" policy on Iraq and Afghanistan. Look at their insistence on cutting taxes for the wealthiest Americans, while adding $3 trillion to the national debt. Look at their energy and Medicare policies, which leave middle-class families struggling, while the oil and drug companies see record profits. Look at their refusal to raise the minimum wage, and their cuts in college aid.

They have certainly shown us what they're capable of. And now, we should show them the door.

Make an additional secure 3-to-1 matched online contribution of $25, $50 or more to the DCCC today to make certain no candidate loses for lack of resources.

During these last few days of the campaign, I'll be doing my part, traveling the country for the DCCC to rally support for Democratic candidates and to spur on vitally important voter contact and get-out-the-vote efforts.

The sheer number of competitive races that Democrats could win is astonishing, and these House candidates are extremely impressive. The DCCC's get-out-the-vote and voter protection operation is the most sophisticated ever executed by Democrats for a mid-term election.

I know I can count on you to do your part as well -- including rushing a generous contribution to sustain the DCCC's all-out drive to make sure every Democratic House candidate locked in a tight race has the support he or she needs to win.

Make an additional secure 3-to-1 matched online contribution of $25, $50 or more to the DCCC today to make certain no candidate loses for lack of resources.

We've done this before -- you and I. We've stood together in the crucial final weeks of a crucial campaign, committed to each other, leaving no stone unturned in our pursuit of victory.

It's time to do it again. Your active support for the DCCC has already laid the groundwork. Now, its time to let loose the most powerful and sustained display of Democratic determination that America has ever seen.

Sincerely,

Bill Clinton

P.S. This is a serious election. We, as citizens, have some fundamental decisions to make about what kind of people we are, what kind of country we are going to leave our children and our grandchildren, and how we are going to relate to the rest of the world.
