I received my first email from the Romney campaign, so I was finally able to compare the two campaigns. I would give the Romney Campaign a B and the Obama Campaign a D.
Obama- Biden

Began receiving emails after signing president's b-day card

17 emails in 2 1/2 weeks

Every email addressed to "Friend"

Almost every email asks directly for a donation. Some of the emails ask for volunteer support.

Some emails provide simple update and unsubscribe links at the bottom. In some one has to read the fine print to find the links. Clicking the unsubscribe button leads to another webpage that states at the top "I’m voting for the President in 2012—I just get too many emails." It has a 4 minute campaign video and allows the individual to either receive fewer emails (in general- no choice of what kind) or stop receiving emails.


Received email as a result of "entering" meet VP contest

Links at the bottom to manage email subscriptions or unsubscribe with one click. Clicking "manage subscriptions" leads to a webpage that allows the individual to select what types of email to receive (endorsements, events, finance, etc...) or unsubscribe from all.

It was a deeply moving experience to be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, last week.

You can't get much closer to the ideals and convictions of the United States than you do in Israel. We're part of the great fellowship of democracies. We speak the same language of freedom and justice and believe in the right of every person to live in peace.

The story of how America -- a nation still so new to the world by the standards of this ancient region -- rose up to become the dear friend of the people of Israel is among the finest and most hopeful in our nation's history. Israel and America are in many respects reflections of one another, and I am happy America has such a great friend and ally.

    Who am I? Just an average woman living an average life. There are many labels I would use to define myself: mom, wife, daughter, student, educator, American, etc. I have no professional experience nor am I claiming to be a writer. Sometimes I am brushing up on some skills I will need when I return to academia, and sometimes I am just sharing or venting.
