All is Not Well in Hillaryland
The campaign of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, held a high-level finance meeting in Chi-town yesterday with top fundraisers, and there was nary a mention in the big meeting of any effort to retire Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign debt, which exceeds $22 million, including more than $11 million in personal loans she made to her campaign.With Barack Obama's endless source of $$$ via the Web, you'd think the guy might wanna fork over a little dough for a sister in need -- you know, to show solidarity.
Nah. Perish the thought; ain't no one gonna help that bitch; she's still holding on to her delegates. Well hang in there, Hillary. In a year where the Dem presidential nominee should be creaming McSame, every recent poll shows Obama barely winning.
It didn’t go unnoticed in Hillaryland, for instance, that the first fundraising solicitation Obama sent out was not for Clinton but instead one to benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
To many Clinton supporters, Obama could easily send an email to his 1.4 million grassroots supporters asking them to help unify the part to retire Clinton's debt. Obama fundraisers could bundle some cash together; former Clinton staffers could be brought on board. Some big Clinton fundraisers are waiting for Obama's team to make a move to help Clinton retire her debt before they write a check for one cent to the presumptive Democratic nominee.
No uptick; no surge; even with Michelle's new makeover, no nothing.
Obama is beating little mac by 15 pts. in the last poll.
Why doesn't she just pay her own bills? Barack Obama isn't paying my debt either.
It's not like the Clinton's are short on money. Bill can pay it off. Hillary, for the sake of her party's unity, should clearly say she wants her people to give to Obama.
