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.

    Oh well...this is enough evidence for her to step down.

    Just wait for the indictment of Illinois State Gov. Rod Blageovich in the Rezko trial any day now, headlines in Sun Times today. Our gov. is a super delegate for Obama. I guess our governor made some "bone-headed" mistakes too being aligned with slumlord Rezko. All the campaign $$ won't wash that away. Have fun with that Obamination.

    Any contributions to Clinton's campaign ought to carry the condition that service providers, staff and staff health insurance policies should be paid in full before any more money be allocated to ads and running up more campaign bills with small businesses and staff.
    Ask for the votes of ordinary working people and stiff them at the same time.

    My comment for the 3rd time (it was removed twice already):

    Hillary supporters are "blue collars". It's no surprise if she can beat Obama in this regard.

    I am still dumbfounded by this perception of the Clintons fighting for the small guys, yet they boast over 50million in personal wealth, invest in tax havens, have the most influential movers and shakers of Wallstreet on their side and yet dont pay the small vendors.

    But truth has a way of floating to the top after all the skimming. Watch that community organizer fellow who only recently finished paying his student loan and is worth less than 2 million in personal wealth. He is plugged in to fellow survivors and like the reeds in the sea they are taking any hit, with a sway and getting right back

    After another Bush presidency wreaked things so bad for everyone for so long everywhere, what we need right now is another Clinton to FIX THE MESS and put the US back in track to prosperity JUST LIKE when Bill Clinton became president. This time IT IS JOBS AND THE ECONMY STUPID.

    Obamas money is based on effective internet networks among young people and kids. It tells nothing about sympathy.

    Hillary didn't want to show she is not being supported by her followers.

    It's possible that HRC could be understating her funds in order to bolster her underdog status and, in the event that she doesn't win the nomination, skim the rest for her personal accounts.

    This is one Clinton supporter that will never vote for Obama. You people are sick. Do any of you remember how good thing where with Clinton in the white house. The whole country was great & now you all spit on Clinton. If this is what you call uniting the country god help you all. This Obama is power hungry, ever since he got elected his has been running for a hier office & you say Clinton is power hungry. Give me a break, what a laugh. All the Dems I know are voted for Mccain, no one will vote for your new god. GOD HELP THIS PEOPLE

    I think that Hillary should continue her quest for the nomination, because I truly believe that this fall racism will raise its ugly head and Barak Obama will lose about as bad as George Mcgovern... As ugly as racism is we must be real and somehow put both of these candidates on the same ticket.......Go HILLARY

    Rumor has it the Clinton campaign "burn rate" is $500,000/day, which means she spent at least $15 million in March while raising $20 mill. But we don't know how much of that $20 mill was for the general election; it could easily be $5 million or more because we were hearing way back before Super Tuesday that a large fraction of her contributors had already maxed out on their $2300 limit for the primaries. Conclusion: cash on hand available for the primaries must be close to zero. No wonder they're stiffing vendors and skimping on media buys in Pennsylvania and foregoing them entirely in Indiana and North Carolina.

    This is a campaign on artificial life support. Thus the scorched earth, slash-and-burn tactics against Obama. It guarantees she'll get on TV for free, it's her last desperate hope of knocking the nomination out of his grasp, and if that doesn't succeed it at least weakens him for November so McCain can win the presidency and Hillary can come back in 2012 with an "I-told-you-so" campaign against a 76-year-old incumbent still hopelessly bogged down in Iraq. Despicable.

    Hi voters of PA. You like Rocky right? I am just like Rocky. I am white, Rocky is white. Obama does not look like Rocky. Obama looks like that bad guy who tried to beat Rocky up. So! Vote for Rocky and Hillary.

    You Obama supporters (at least ones on this blog) are a mean-spirited, sanctimonious and hypocritical bunch. Keep up the nasty attacks against the Clintons and her supporters and you've ensured a McCain win in the general election. I never thought I would say this but these so-called Obama supporters are worst than the Republican attack machine. And I never thought I would say this but for the first time I am seriously considering abstain from voting should Obama win the primary. This is not a threat - this is a reflection of how disgusted I am with the election and with the Obama camp in general.

    CNN, please publish this so Mr. Obama and his supporters and the high profile, male-dominated surrogates know the anger and resentment among the Clinton supporters. Perhaps, the Obama camp doesn't care and believes Obama can win without the support the other half of the Democratic Party.
