First Lady Michelle Obama says that actress Sarah Jessica Parker is “a great role model,” and that the winning donor of Obama For America’s raffle will get to spend an evening with her, Parker, and the president.

The e-mail soliciting campaign donations (which get you a raffle ticket) touts Parker’s virtues, not her talents, as the draw:

“Sarah Jessica Parker is a loving mom, an incredibly hard worker, and a great role model. She's one of those people you can't help but admire.

“Barack and I are thrilled that we're invited for an evening at her home in New York next week. And I'm hoping you'll be there, too, along with whoever you'd like to bring.”
