Sometimes, I really wish I were in the Obamas’ inner social circle. If I were, in just the past few years, I might have feasted at a Mad Hatter Halloween party, listened to Paul McCartney while the rest of the world lamented an oil spill and joined a conga line at the president’s most recent birthday party.

Unfortunately for me, I’m far from friendly with the Obamas, but, as it turns out, I can party with Obama, after all! And so can you!

The Obama campaign’s under-40 organizing arm, Generation 44, is hosting a dance party on Jan. 18 to raise funds for the president’s reelection campaign.

The party, held at Boston dance club The Goodlife, will charge $20 per ticket and feature local Boston performer DJ MR McNeill.

Billed as “A Dance Party for Obama” the event is a 21-and-over event and will run from 7-ll PM.

It’s unclear whether the president will be present at the party, but I’m betting no. Either way, it’s actually a clever idea. Need I say it again? The GOP candidates could definitely stand to do more to reach out to young voters — if not for their own election efforts now, then at least for the future of the GOP.
