The Obama campaign has just sent out the following fundraising email, signed by Vice President Joe Biden. The subject line reads, "I want to buy you a cup of coffee." Read the email below:

Michael --

Want to have a cup of coffee sometime soon?

I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about, but mainly I just want to say thanks for helping out.

Make a donation of $3 or whatever you can to grow this grassroots campaign, and be automatically entered for the chance to come hang out -- flight, hotel, and coffee on us. You can even bring a guest.

Barack and I know that we ask you for a lot. We wouldn't do it if we didn't believe that folks like you are going to decide this election.

The spending on the other side this year is literally unprecedented. If nothing changes, Barack is on pace to be the first president in modern history to get outspent in his re-election campaign.

What you do will determine how this goes.

Make a grassroots donation today, and you'll be automatically entered to win:

Last week was a big one for this campaign. The truth is we need every week to be that big. We need to dig deeper and deeper every day if we want to win.

Hope to see you soon,

Joe
