Clinton raises $20 million in March

(CNN) - Six hours after senior advisers to Hillary Clinton told reporters her March fundraising total would not be released until later this month, campaign sources tell CNN her campaign raised $20 million during that time period - about half of what rival Barack Obama took in for the month.

    Ok, so she didn't break the bank in March, but she did close the delegate gap. Oh, wait...

    The heavens are opened and the celestial choir are singing "Time to quit, Hillary"

    Hillarys' supporters should do the right thing and start supporting Obama, so that we will have a democrat in the White House. Hillarys' supporters should think about the country and support the winning candidate.

    Barack Obama – President of United States of America

    Whats more important is how little of it can be used for the primary season. THATS BECAUSE ALL OF HER MONEY COMES FROM LARGE DONORS WHO ARE MAXED OUT.

    Obama has his worst month effort in the press and raises 40 million.

    Wake up HIllary supporters, lets get behind Obama now and make this election a mandate victory for Barack.

    Time to put your pettiness aside for the good of the country.

    Whats funny is that in this election, the little bank will take over the big bank. Obama does not stand a chance in the fall.

    Keep it up, we all love a good fight. However, neither can win a general election.

    Now that is down from the $35 million she raised in February. I wonder why? Liar comes to mind. She is losing her support because people realize that she cannot be trusted.

    Looks like the well is beginning to dry up. I wonder how much of that is for the general election. Also, if you take out the 14 million in debts the campaign has, then she really only raised 6 million and has only about 3 million on hand. Obama has over 70 million on hand.

    Hmmmm!!!!

    I don't underestimate Hillary Clinton's ability to use that amount to its fullest potential to ruthlessly tear down Barack Obama and tear apart the Democratic party and hand the election to John McCain.

    That is good enough to beat Obama.

    Obama is the guy who voted against the

    BORN ALIVE INFANTS PROTECTION ACT

    in the Illinois Senate.

    He did not give those babies a chance to life, why should we give him a chance to be our President ?

    Vote for Hillary.

    And no more than half of that was from a loan I gave myself. Just don't ask me for my donor list or my tax returns. Ever.

    I'm surprised she was able to give that much.
    She is going down in the polls.
    I wonder how much of that 20 million she loaned to the campaign!

    B-b-b...but.. I thought she said earlier that she raised 40 million?

    She wouldn't lie to us, would she?!

    Half the money, half the candidate. Makes sense!

    To all people:

    People who are poor and not able to donate everyday are donating to these camps. Ridiculing the raised total amount is ridiculing these people.

    If we need to ridicule- ridicule the camp who is not using this $$$ effectively.

    It doesn't matter – Clinton or Obama, they're both approximately the same. Clinton is less-able to hide the fact she's a true politician, that's all. Obama is good at hiding it, but in the end he's just a politician.

    I wonder how much McCain is raising for the GE? With democrats wasting all their money on the primaries, does that mean they won't have that much for the GE?

    McCain has more integrity than both of them combined. I can't wait to see what he does as president!
