Senator Barack Obama is going to celebrate his birthday in the Bay State and we can help! Read on:

At the New England Steering Committee meeting on Wednesday, it was announced that Senator Obama will be in Boston on August 4, his 47th birthday. There will be two fundraising events in Boston that evening at the State Room, 60 State Street. They are expected to be his only fundraising events in New England before the convention and possibly before the election.

- A reception for contributions of $1,000 to $2,300 per person. Doors will open at 4:00 p.m. and Senator Obama will speak at about 5:30 p.m. (maximum: about 800 people). This event is likely to fill up very quickly.

- A dinner for $28,500 per couple* (or $14,250 per person). This includes the reception and a photo line with Senator Obama (expected: about 150 people).

Isn't his campaign about change? Empowerment of new groups of voters? Then we do we have to go through such typical demonstrations of elitism?

Sure I'm going to vote for him, because I've had enough of Republican administrations and I don't want Senator McCain. But I hope that all of this talk about change is genuine and Obama really isn't another Republican-lite like Bill Clinton frequently proved to be.
