Axelrod mum on fundraising

WASHINGTON (CNN) - While top Obama strategist David Axelrod predictably touted his candidate's performance at Thursday's debate, he was mum on the battle for fundraising dollars.

"We'll see," Axelrod said with a smile, when asked if Illinois Sen. Barack Obama would beat top rival, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, in second quarter fundraising.

"I feel good about what we have done," Axelrod added. "As I speak we have received donations from more than 250,000 people, which is historic - it shows the support at the grassroots."

    That is fairly funny, but let's be nice. We need a new kind of politics which doesn't focus on attack and distortions. I am not a Hillary fan myself, but we should not attack her.
