The president's reelection campaign is sending around a picture from what appears to be a family celebration of Barack Obama's 43 birthday, from 2004, in an attempt to raise campaign cash. Under the subject line, "Warning: This picture is cute," Obama for America, the campaign team, writes:

Daniel --
