Subject:RE: Let’s help John Kerry make history  Hi Mr. President:Thanks for writing.  We sure miss you, and your political, international and fiscal leadership.  We miss your party in Congress, too. We miss the days of checks and balances, which, since 2000 has been perverted by a yes-men GOP Congress into a system of open checkbooks and negative balances.

I am glad to see you lend your politcal clout to electing Senator Kerry next November.  Maybe you can also raise some funds to bounce that TV sportscaster turned GOP sycophant J.D. Hayworth out of office. Not to hit close to home or anything, but that carpetbagging GOP mercenary Rick Renzi needs to go, too.  Maybe you can help fund that effort, too.
About the funding:  can your friends in the DNC make it easier for us to give money?  I would toss some cash their way if I could use PayPal.  Because the economy under George Bush (the sequel) mirrors the economy of George Bush (the original), I have a balance on my credit card, which means I’m paying interest on my $2 a gallon gas.  I am loathe to pay interest on a political contribution, too.  Perhaps I am not the only one who feels that way.  If you could have your people look into it, I would be grateful.  Thanks again.

The Democratic National Committee is sending the following special message on behalf of John Kerry, the next President of the United States.

Join Bill Clinton and Help John Kerry Make History

Dear [Wink Dinkerson],

You and I have made history together before. It’s time to make some more.

Just a week after President Bush began his multi-million advertising blitz, Republicans have gone negative with the first of what will certainly be a barrage of attack ads. This is a major test for John Kerry’s campaign — and it’s a significant opportunity for you and me.

It’s our chance to demonstrate that, in 2004, we’re not going to yield an inch to the Republican attack machine when it comes to defining what this campaign is all about. It’s our chance to give John Kerry the kind of immediate, dramatic support he needs to stand toe-to-toe with the President and force him to debate the real issues in this campaign.

March 16, 2004 — Let’s make today the day that the entire Democratic Party spoke with one voice and launched the most successful 10-day fundraising drive in our Party’s history. Here’s my challenge to you: Send a donation right now to help me launch a “$10 Million in 10 Days” fundraising drive for John Kerry’s campaign. Let’s send donations flooding in to Kerry headquarters.

Today, you and I can send a powerful message to John Kerry. We can promise him that we will never let him stand alone in the face of Republican attacks. In the days ahead, you’ll be hearing from forceful voices from all across the Democratic Party — all united in our determination to carry our values to victory in 2004. But, don’t wait to act. Join me in making 3/16/04 a day you and I will always remember — and one Republicans will never forget.

Thank you for joining me in standing behind John Kerry at a pivotal moment in his vitally important campaign. You and I have proven it time and time again. Working together, we know how to win. Let’s do it again.

Sincerely,

Bill Clinton
