Obama's night of fundraising

President Obama focused on his 2012 campaign in earnest Wednesday when he returned to his hometown of Chicago to rally supporters at his re-election headquarters and raise some hefty campaign cash.

Not long after arriving in the Windy City, the president stopped by his national campaign headquarters to thank workers and supporters. It was the president’s first visit to the offices of Obama for America. There he addressed a few hundred campaign staffers encouraging them to run “a campaign that embodies the values we're fighting for.”

    A 'campaign that embodies the values we're fighting for'. So it will be collect a billion+ dollars from fellow grifters and make sure they know they will be paid off down the road. It will probably work as the country sinks further and further.

    "There he addressed a few hundred campaign staffers encouraging them to run “a campaign that embodies the values we're fighting for.”

    I hope you are paying attention John Kerry. This is why Obama was elected and hopefully be re-elected. He is not afraid to use improper grammar to make his point more forcefully. The correct phrase would of cousre be:
    "a campaign that embodies the values for which we are fighting .” It does not have the same impact however however correct it may be. So if you ever run for President again (I think you woukld have been great) remember: a preposition is something you should not be afraid to end a sentence with. With apologies to my English teacher.
