I want to meet Jim Messina.
It should be easy, right? I live just 35 minutes from D.C. and he spends alot of his time at the White House. I am sure I could find him on Facebook or through my media connections and arrange something...
Why is he someone I need to know? Messina, President Obama's campaign manager, is one of the best copyrighters I've seen.
My curiosity about Jim began last Tuesday. My husband and I were headed to D.C., and I was surfing the Web on my iPad while he drove. I saw a banner ad inviting me to Dinner with Obama. I was intrigued.
I clicked on the ad, and willingly entered my name in the contest. I already could envision myself winning that dinner, and the myriad questions I would ask Mr. President.
