Open Letter to Greg Jones

from Obama Headquarters !!!

also: Newsweek Mag shows Obama leading in Iowa Polls !!!

Dear Greg,

Last night our movement hit some landmark goals: more than 500,000 donations from more than 350,000 people.
We also got news yesterday from Iowa -- we're leading in the latest Newsweek poll of likely caucus-goers. Here's the breakdown:
Obama: 28%Clinton: 24%Edwards: 22%
And our lead climbs to 8 points when first and second choices are combined.
It's important to remember that deciding the Democratic nominee for president is a sequential process that begins in Iowa. Generating momentum early will be the key to winning the nomination.
So while the pundits focus on meaningless national polls, we are leading in the one state where the electorate is most focused on this election and where they are getting the most exposure to Barack.
That same dynamic explains the unprecedented number of donors to our movement. The American people by and large have not yet tuned into this election. But among those who have gotten involved, Barack Obama has inspired record numbers to take ownership of this campaign.
We have a long way to go, but because of your support and determination, we are shattering records and making progress where it counts most.

Thank you so much for everything you've done to make this happen.

David Plouffe

Campaign Chairman
