....Major donors will experience a very different convention than rank-and-file delegates who will fill the arena on Tuesday and Wednesday night and the Bank of America stadium on Thursday. Besides getting credentials to the sessions they also have access to the best hotels and VIP finance lounges and finance staff who will provide concierge-type services for them.
.....The best VIP perks go to those who donated at least $75,800 to the joint Obama campaign/Democratic National Committee fund-raising committee with more perks going to donors who have a track record of giving at least $122,400 from Feb., 2009 to June 1 or who raised $350,000 from Jan. 1, 2011 through June 1.
For those who raised between $500,000 to $1 million between Jan. 1, 2011 and June 1 for the committee the Chicago Sun-Times has learned the perk package includes:
A Monday podium preview for a sneakpeek of the convention hall followed by a desert reception at the FrontCourt club, a fine-dining restaurant at the arena.
Attendees will have the opportunity to stand behind the official podium of the Democratic National Convention, according to a perk book published for the Obama Victory Fund finance guest.
On Tuesday all the major donors and fund-raisers are invited to an inside track briefing with major Obama team honchos.
Former President Bill Clinton keynotes Wednesday night and the VIPS are invited to an after party with Clinton running from 11 p.m. to 2 p.m.
On Thursday, Mrs. Obama plus Obama senior staff preside over a 10 a.m. breakfast briefing at the Westin Hotel, one of the most exclusive events.
After Obama and Vice President Joe Biden accept the nomination, Biden will headline the Victory Lane after party at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Those lucky attendees who gave until it hurt and who stand behind the podium will ressemble a rogues gallery.
When Slick Willy speaks there will be a little fatty inside the podium giving him the incentive to keep talking jibberish until he’s hauled off the stage.
For a $500,000 donation Michelle Obama will permit you to dine in her presence.
For a $1,000,000 donation she will stay away and allow you to dine in comfort.
Wow! The after party from 11PM to 2PM? That really DOES sound like a Slick Willie party!!
You are right. The other face scars the heck out of me...
