THE PLANK FEBRUARY 7, 2008
Obama's post-Super Tuesday fundraising haul is certainly impressive. But Hillary's--while not as big--is more surprising. After all, the assumption was she didn't have a small donor base. But now she suddenly does. From Marc Ambinder:
In the 24 hours since polls closed on Super Tuesday, as more than $4M
in donations from 35,000 new donors have poured into Clinton's
campaign, according to a senior campaign official. (As of 11:00 am, the
total is nearly $5M.)
That $5 million loan is looking like it was her Oral Roberts moment.
