NEW YORK (CNN) - Sen. Hillary Clinton's Pennsylvania victory seems to be helping her regain ground financially against rival Barack Obama, who has outraised her by tens of millions of dollars.

The day that followed Clinton's Pennsylvania win was the biggest day in the history of her campaign, according to Terry McAuliffe, her campaign chairman.

The New York senator raised $10 million through the Internet and had 80,000 new donors, he said.

Compare that to two months ago, when Clinton could not afford to pay staffers and even lent her campaign $5 million from her own pocket.

    Funny how it took her many months to realize that Obama had the right approach to fund raising. That says volume about her inability to think ahead. Guess this is why she attracts the 60+ voters .... !!!

    "save us from the GREAT CACKLER"

    Thanks to an Obama supporter for another well thought out and meticulously researched comment.

    Sexism and name calling is never OK.

    I watched Larry King last night I truely saw an idiot answering and changing answers. First it was because of the speech about race and now it was because of the nagativity of the Clinton campaign. Carville said it right, that was so idiotic to say that the Clintons cling to the throne. Is it written any where in the consititution that a wife of a former president can't be a president or does the consititution limit the number of family members who can become presidents? Richardson is a governor who should have known better that the consititution allows anyone born in America to run for the presidency. If it was not for citizenship, Obama ,whose father is a Kenyan wouldn't run for the presidency of America. Shame on you Richardson. It was the Clintons who pushed you that far to the career you have now, you shouldn't have trushed them on the national TV

    Hill can win in November. Obama can't. Too liberal for moderates and indipendants by far.

    Quit throwing your $$ away on a candidate that tries (unsuccessfully)to win primaries by outspending his opponent and swamping the airwaves.

    Hey Charlotte, I am a 44 year old female and I find your comments to be totally absurd!! "The male EGO is still very fragile and makes them resent the success of the female gender". (????) Based on your dribble, you seem to be choosing your candidate on gender equality or better yet, gender superiority and not the issues. Gender should not make a difference, however, being a liar and having a history of lying does matter.
