Obama campaign: Text us your money

New York (CNNMoney) - The Obama campaign announced Thursday that it will begin to accept donations via text message this week, marking the first move by a political campaign into fundraising territory pioneered by charities.

The system will allow cell phone users to make small donations - less than $50 at a time - to the Obama campaign via text message. The charge will be added to the user's monthly cell phone bill.

    President Clinton says:

    "This election to me is about which candidate is more likely to return us to full employment."

    "This is a clear choice. The Republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper income people and go back to deregulation. That's what got us in trouble in the first place."

    "President Obama has a plan to rebuild America from the ground up, investing in innovation, education and job training. It only works if there is a strong middle class."

    "That's what happened when I was president. We need to keep going with his plan."
