From Jacob Soboroff:

Hi Mark,

An opporunity to have Barack Obama publicly address (on national TV) how he intends to fix our broken voting system has fallen in our lap. I know it’s Friday eve, but if there is any way you can forward the following e-mail to your list of contacts it would be great. We have until Monday at 10AM EST to gain around 1,500 votes to get from third to first place on and have our question asked at the MTV/MySpace forum in Iowa Monday afternoon.

Either way, I hope to connect with you the next time I’m in New York and will let you know as soon as I have a date set.

Why Tuesday? needs a click from you. It will only take a few seconds to
give this video a thumbs up.

The top community-voted question on as of 10 AM EST on Monday, 10/29 will be asked in that day’s MySpace/MTV Obama dialogue, which is taking place at 1:30 EST at Coe College in Cedar Rapids, IA.

We submitted a video question that deserves an answer. Please take a few moments to vote for the videoso Senator Obama will respond with an election reform plan.

There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
