What a week it has been! Thanks to your hard work, we are now poised for a most incredible and unique Citizens Rally & March for Hope beginning at Milly's Tavern this Saturday, February 3rd at 1:00 pm. It's an unconventional rally for an unconventional candidate " and why not"! The buzz is getting all over state that this is THE event to be at this weekend... celebrating a man, a vision, and a politics of possibility! It?s our last chance here in New Hampshire to send a message to Senator Obama, the media, the state, and the entire country that WE ARE READY before he announces his intentions for 2008. I hope you've already made plans to join us!

In fact, the buzz is so strong that NH Draft Obama?s Steve Sullivan has been invited to appear on "Portside" with former State Senator Burt Cohen this Thursday at Noon. Portside airs on Portsmouth Community Radio (106.1 FM) and also streams live at Be sure to tune in " and encourage family and friends to tune in " for the latest on Saturday's festivities!

Over the next few days, members of the NH Draft Obama Leadership Team will take turns sharing their stories about how they've been inspired by the Senator over the last few weeks, months, and years. This is a phenomenal, diverse group of individuals who have volunteered long hours to putting Saturday's event together and garnering support across the Granite State for a potential Obama bid for President in 2008. Be sure to listen. We encourage you to share you own story, too, of "Why Obama?" Just e-mail us back and be sure to include your name and city or town. We'll be sharing them as we get closer to the big day.

Thank you for all that you?re doing to help to spread the word! Forward this e-mail. Ask your family and friends what they're up to on Saturday. Squeeze everyone into the car on Saturday. Do what you need to do... but WHATEVER you do  don't miss out on this final push by Granite Staters to encourage Senator Obama to run in 2008!

P.S.  Be sure to e-mail us back if you want to get even more involved with this ever-growing Movement! FYI - Our NH Draft Obama Weekly Meetup takes place on Thursday nights at Panera Bread (T.J. Maxx Plaza off South Willow St.) in Manchester. Also, if you'd like to be taken off of this list, e-mail us back as well. Thanks!
