I've been hoping that I will receive an invitation to Obama's inauguration. Have any of you received an invitation?  I'm not talking about the much coveted tickets to the event, but about the 1,000,000 engraved invitations that they're printing.

You can read about the printer that's producing them (in a union shop on recycled paper) here on the ABC News Website: "Printer Crafts 1 Million Inaugural Invitations"

I'd really like to get one of these to frame and cherish forever, as I am sure most of you would also. Anyone have any news about when these are going out in the mail? Anyone know what the criteria is to receive one?

I donated the max to the campaign ($4600.00) and hope that qualifies me.

I know that this isn't much of a diary, but wanted to get some feedback from my fellow Kossacks.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
