Came across this in the NYTimes -- an article about fundraising for the Presidential election.
A recent e-mail message to McCain fund-raisers unveiled new incentives to spur them in their final push. For the primary, anyone who raised $100,000 or more earned the title of Trailblazer, while those who raised $250,000 or more became Innovators. Now Trailblazers who raise another $100,000 for the party for the general election can become Super-Trailblazers, and Innovators who raise another $250,000 earn the title of Super-Innovators.
Growing up, like many of you, I dreamed of being a Trail Blazer. How foolish of me. I had no idea Super Trail Blazing was on the table.
Is becoming a Super-Trailblazer sort of like getting your jersey retired? If so, I nominate Terry Porter as the first Super-Trailblazer.
