John McCain's campaign must be loving his post-convention polling bump, but Barack Obama's campaign shouldn't be stressing out.

$1,000 gets you in the door. $3,000 gets your "preferred" admission. And $15,000 gets you a picture with the candidate. Pricey, pricey.
The event is scheduled for next Friday, September 13th. You can RSVP at the official website if you have $15k in your pocket and a place on your picture wall yearning for a shot of you and a potential president. If all your bank account has is a little bit of change (not even the type you can believe in, har har), it's likely Obama will make a few other stops around town that day.
