Forget the brown bag lunch. Instead, unload some cash on Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and win a chance to be lunching with the ultimate political power couple.
The Clintons are offering up the chance to dine at the family's Washington, D.C., home.
“I think it would be fun to have you over for lunch, at my table, in my home in Washington,” Hillary Clinton says on her campaign Web site.
Bill Clinton doesn't want to be left out.
"I hear you might be having lunch with Hillary — do you mind if I drop in?" Bill Clinton wrote in an e-mail message sent out to supporters.
Apparently a lunch with Hillary Clinton would be one to remember.
"I've met some of the greatest people of our time from every walk of life. But of all the people I have ever shared a table with, I still learn the most when I sit down to a meal with Hillary," Bill Clinton says in the e-mail.
To win a date with the Clintons, the New York senator's campaign Web site asks supporters to make a contribution by Sept. 7. When donors contribute, their names go into a raffle for the winner and a guest to join the Clintons in their home.
The fundraiser helps prolong the campaign's fundraising with a new idea to max out donors with the possibility of lunch with a powerful campaign couple, said Laura Schwartz, a FOX News political analyst.
Lunching with another political couple just doesn't compare, Schwartz said.
“They are the super couple,” said Schwartz, a former special assistant to the Clinton administration. “There’s no campaign couple like Hillary and Bill Clinton because of the enormous star power of Bill Clinton and his presidency.”
The lunch is a clever gimmick to raise more money from donors already tapped out during a long campaign season, said Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics.
“What does Hillary Clinton have that the other candidates don't have so much of? The answer: celebrity,” Sabato said.
The ultimate Republican power lunch would be a meal with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and his wife, Judith, Sabato said.
“I’ll bet it’s done before it’s over,” Sabato said.
Clinton's latest fundraiser isn't the first of its kind. Barack Obama, another leading Democratic presidential hopeful, campaigns for more dollars with "Dinner With Barack."
Rather than lunch, Obama has met contributors for dinner.
Obama first urged supporters to make a donation of $5 or more between June 6 and June 13. In July, Obama showed up in a suit and a tie to join four grassroots donors at a Washington, D.C., restaurant.
A second lottery was held between July 26 and July 31 to win a date at the dinner table with him for the second dinner on Labor Day in Nashua, N.H.
Obama’s campaign has posted highlights from the first dinner on his campaign Web site, complete with profiles of the four winners.
