Bush: Thank you for your support in the past. Please be our guests at the White House for an evening and stay the night.

clintoon: If you will donate $50,000 to the DNC, you can spend a night in the White House.

A subtle but distinct difference that will be completely lost on the left.

One Democratic fund-raiser, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said he regularly solicited contributions from Washington lobbyists who understood the money might gain them the rarest contact of all -- unfiltered access to the president.

Donations got lobbyists invited to coffees with Clinton

Big difference!

The RNC has historically run its major donor programs as "membership clubs." You join the Eagles, Team 100, etc. and are eligible to participate in a program. This will consist of several meetings a year. The president, of course, is likely to be a guest at some of these functions, which are social in nature and generally involve rather large numbers of people. Think upscale Lincoln Day dinners. However, the RNC never says, "Send us $50,000 or $100,000 for a meeting with the president." And the RNC would never dream of renting out the Lincoln Bedroom.
