Tom, Christie, and a tank of gas

This was in the email today:

Dear Lisa,
When Tom first ran for governor in 1998, David Yepsen, columnist with the Des Moines Register, called our campaign “Tom, Christie, and a tank of gas.”
After 8 years of hard work, together we have turned Iowa blue. We have come a long way from having just a tank of gas. We are now traveling all across the country, and Tom is actively promoting real solutions to stop the escalation in the Iraq War and make our country energy secure.
Along the way, many supporters ask: How can we help?
The answer is simple.
Tom and I have hosted countless potluck dinners and meetings at our home on North Main Street in Mt. Pleasant. We’d do it to welcome new neighbors, raise money for the local schools and even organize Tom’s early campaigns.
Well, now that our national campaign has outgrown our house, I’m writing to ask you to join us and bring the campaign into your home.
I hope you will join us and host a Main Street Meeting for Tom:
The most important thing you can do to help is to take the lead in your hometown. Our organizers will help you put together your own Main Street Meeting.
This is a national campaign to change this country –- so please invite your friends and neighbors and introduce them to our campaign.
Our family will be spread throughout the country -- Tom will be in New Hampshire, I’ll be in Iowa with our son Jess, and our other son, Doug will be in Colorado -- and we hope you will join us via conference call.
Will you sign up to host a Main Street Meeting for Tom now?
Our campaign is not about huge rallies and expensive ads. We will win by organizing Americans everywhere who are ready for a President who has the courage to bring our troops home from Iraq and find innovative solutions to make America energy secure.
The conversations that we will have in living rooms like yours are how we will build our campaign and how we will win in 2008.
Please join us on Saturday, February 26 by hosting an event. Invite your friends, family and neighbors over for an important first step in changing our country in 2008.
Thank you so much.
P.S. Tom will deliver a speech at the Democratic National Committee’s Winter Meeting. You can watch the speech live on C-SPAN on Saturday, February 3 at about 9:20AM CST. I hope you are able to watch!
