In a fundraising e-mail to supporters, Judith Giuliani says that anyone who makes a contribution to Rudy Giuliani's presidential campaign this week will be entered in a contest to win a trip to New York to spend some time with him at ground zero.

It would be if it actually happened. It didn't.

But in a fundraising e-mail to supporters, Elizabeth Edwards says that anyone who makes a contribution to John Edwards' presidential campaign this week will be entered in a contest to win a trip to New Orleans to work with him in an area hit by Hurricane Katrina.

Fair comparison? And if not, why not?
