Obama Team Adds Inaugural Email Alert System
After using a massive email network to rally supporters to the polls (and raise money), Barack Obama's team is extending the campaign strategy to the inaugural. The Presidential Inaugural Committee is asking people to sign up to receive email alerts through its Web site.
A note on the page says, "Sign up today to be one of the first to receive information about inaugural events, tickets, service opportunities, and ways to participate from your own home."
But is this just another way to raise money? After signing up, one is brought directly to a page asking for donations to help pay for the inaugural.
"Your support will be crucial to helping us make these events open to as many people as possible as we commemorate the day Barack Obama takes office as the 44th President of the United States," the page says. "Your donation today will help make this historic day a success."
