Barack Obama has sent out a fundraising e-mail — with the subject line “Desperation” — alluding to recent attacks from the Hillary Clinton campaign as Obama pulls ahead in the polls in Iowa.

The e-mail begins: “Attack ads and insults, distractions and dishonesty, and millions of dollars from outside groups and undisclosed donors.

“The Washington establishment is throwing everything at us to try and block our path. And these outside attack groups are just another part of the same broken system that turns people off from the political process …

“They said we couldn't compete without taking money from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs. But you proved them wrong.”

The mailing asserts that the Obama campaign has received small donations from more Americans than any other campaign in history -- more than 465,000 donors and counting.

The mailing signed “Barack” continues: “They said we couldn't be successful if we didn't have the full support of the establishment in Washington. But you proved them wrong.”

The e-mail seeks donations of $25, with a goal of receiving support from 500,000 contributors.

The mailing ends with a reference to the supposedly unstoppable Clinton campaign: “We can triumph over what Washington said was inevitable.”

Another e-mail sent out by Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, echoes Obama’s mailing.

“Hillary Clinton's friends from Washington are spending millions on attacks, including a mailing that misleads voters by falsely disparaging Barack's universal health care plan,” the e-mail reads.

“The mailing carefully uses a quote from another candidate and mimics the design of that candidate's mailings -- apparently with the hope that Iowans offended by the negativity will think it came from someone else.

“The case has never been clearer -- this kind of politics needs to end. And you have the power to end it.”

Plouffe tells potential supporters that if they contribute $25, “your impact will be doubled by a previous donor who has promised to match your gift…

“We are in a position to win this nomination, but we need to start strong in Iowa and keep the momentum building.”
