    WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!! SHOW ME THE MONEY BARACK!!! This guy is a serious contender and if Hillary folks continue to sit around and smile on national polls they will find themselves making that phone call to offer support to Barack and seek the NO.2 spot on the ticket. $34 IN THE BANK, 250,000 DONORS/SUPPORTERS, A COUNTRY YEARNING FOR CHANGE, A VISIONARY FOR A BETTER TOMORROW, AND DETERMINED PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF TO FIGHT TOOTH AND NAIL FOR BARACK ITS HARD TO COME BETWEEN SUCH A MASSIVE FORCE!!!

    I can think of a lot more important things for Americans to give/donate money to!

    I feel like I’m watching an ASB election at a local high school. The student with the best posters and most post-it notes on lockers wins. It would be nice to have the MSM report on the real issues rather than on the “warchest” that the candidate has. As it’s looking now, according to the media, the candidate with the most money is looked at as the winner regardless of values. That’s a shame for our country.

    Obama is fighting Hillary's big money with small donors, internet donors, and grassroots politics. Best of luck to him, maybe Hillary isn't the "incumbent" nominee after all!

    Are you tired of the role money plays in the political process?

    Be a part of the new movement. Visit http://www.freepoliticalparty.com for additional details. Contribute to the platform (questions and ideas, not money) of a new party free of the influence and entangling alliances associated with the fundraising process. My fellow Americans, together we can collaborate and achieve great goals!

    And not a cent accepted from PACs or lobbyists! Unlike the Clintons, he won't owe political favors to special interests if he's elected; he can just focus on doing what's best for the country.

    OOOH Bama supporters are as shallow as thier candidate. Barack is a member of the "counsil on Foriegn Relations" and is and will continue to work towards the North American Union. He wants to combine Canada, The United States and Mexico. This eliminates our borders. He wants the new money to be the "Amero". research people research please Ann
