Financial Trouble….

More political content: turn away if apathetic, apolitical, naive, or like to lecture about being “swayed” but still don’t participate:

Couple of news items:

Clinton has had to put $5 million of her own money into her campaign, and top-level staffers are volunteering to go without pay.

Meanwhile, Obama has raised 7.2 million dollars from donors since Tuesday.

Naturally, Clinton is now demanding weekly debates with Obama for the rest of the campaign. Why? Because that gives her massive television exposure that she doesn’t have to pay for. It’s a risky proposition — if Obama says no (not wanting to give her any advantage), he risks looking like he’s “dodging.” But, on the other hand, if he says yes, and debates her, she runs the risk of exposing even more people to his message and his far-superior ability to influence through speech.

The upshot of this all, of course, is that it’s gotten so bad for Clinton that she’s having to bankroll herself. Hopefully, it will work as well for her as it has for Mitt Romney.
