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.

    That's great news. Now she can may back the Mom and Pop shops she's in debt to. She can also pay her $18.95 phone bill.

    That's still a lot of money. Clinton has lots of loyal supporters and good democrats. In the end, we will all support whichever democrat is the nominee, despite what we say and how we are voting now. I know lots of Obama and Clinton supporters who say they will vote for McCain -and are being honest – but when they recover from their disappointment and think about it, they will vote for the democrat, whoever it is.

    Behind in popular vote and elected delegates. Caught lying about her resume. Some of her superdelegates are looking for an exit (Corzine, Murtha) now the money is starting to dry up. In 4 months she has mismanaged her campaign and went from the inevitable to the irrelevant. I hope this is the last we see of any clinton for generations. No more Clinton/Bush dynasties.

    No Wonder they needed to try and delay this infomation. This is a major indicator of her impending doom. If you take the 10 million she has in back unpaid bills she has just 10 left!

    Reality check for her very vocal but I guess CHEAP supporters eh?

    Even if this is true (highly unlikely), it's still only half of Obama's when they're already behind in every count... hnmm time to drop out maybe?

    LIAR.

    March 31, 2008 on her homepage she had a splash saying she needs to raise $3 mil for March. She raised 3.4 mil. I saw it April 1 on her website and have a screen shot.

    Money is a key indicator of who, where support is coming for. The major question is why would Hillary think that Obama cannot win? Someone please explain this to me.....please explain this to me!

    Some one should look up the definition of loser. President carter may not have been the best President, but is an absolutely great human being. He did not leave the office in disgrace, he did not sacrifice his spirituality for politics, nor did he pander just to get votes. Americans have given up their greatness for materialism and bs.

    Obama's contribtions average about $96.00 however Clinton's average contributors was about $170.00. Why is it that? Can someone remind her that she overdue on paying her bills.

    Senator Hillary Clinton is one of the most distructive people in government much like President Bush she like to rack up bills for someone else to pay.

    How in the hell can she say that she pro union when she worked on the board of Wal-Mart fighting the Union. She was heartless than and she is heartless now. By her not paying her bill some one can be going hungry. Raising $20 millions dollars she should pay all of her bills.

    This is a good total for Senator Clinton. She will win Pennsylvania, albeit not by as large a margin her campaign was hoping for. In the end, Obama will get to be the Nominee and she will endorse him. Come November, the Democrats will be united and will handily defeat McCain. Sure there will be lots of anger from Clinton supporters and they will loudly voice their support for McCain in an outburst of anger and resentment toward Obama for sneaking into this election and snatching the first real chance we have come to electing a female President. Obama will probably have to pick a female other than Clinton (Kathleen Sebelius, D-KS) for the VP spot to satisfy the majority of these supporters. Clinton will be forced to campaign hard and strong for Obama to heal the wounds of the Party. She will probably have to go as far as to say, "I will not run again in 2012"

    Plenty of money to do what she has to do for ads and campaign costs.
    She will not be overspending peoples' hard-earned money saturating the airways trying to go for a knockout punch like Obama. It's hard to see in this hard economic time.

    I saw on her website that she was bluffing that the momentum was with them in every direction, where is that, oops...., not any more.

    She is losing lead in PA, Obama is closing the gap. What is next. Lose the game and leave the campaign.

    Obama '08.

    Well, she raised 20 million, Obama raised 40 million, and John MCCain's wife lent several million to his campaign; and we STILL have senior citizens in this country eating cat food, and most of us can't afford to fiil our gas tanks anymore.

    Hillary will use that $20 million to attack Barack – forcing him to spend his campaign dollars fending off her impossible attempt at reaching the nomination. The campaign dollars SHOULD be used for the general election – not fighting Hillary Clinton.

    DROP OUT HILLARY!!
