The Clinton campaign is reporting a very successful fundraising day.

(CNN) - Hillary Clinton's campaign says it is on track to raise $10 million online in the 24 hours since the Pennsylvania primary results were announced.

"Senator Clinton's game-changing victory last night has turned the tide and resulted in an historic outpouring of grassroots support," Clinton Campaign Chairman Terry McAuliffe said in a statement. "Just like Hillary, our supporters have met every challenge and come through each time. Thanks to them, we will have the resources needed to compete and win as we move ahead to the next contests."

The campaign also said over 60,000 donors - 50,000 of them new - have given money to Clinton from Tuesday night through noon Wednesday.

    I'm female, white, 77years old, a catholic, active in democratic politics in Florida for the past twenty years – I worked hard for Bill Clinton's election- and I believe he did a great job as President – but I am ashamed of him now – and especially Hillary Clinton. who doesn't blink an eye when she lies – and the way she has tried to debase her opponent on every occasion is absolutely nauseating. The debate which was a trap for Obama (hasn't anyone read or listened to his magnificent speech on 'race.'? giving Hillary the opportunity to milk it until I wanted to throw my remote at the TV screen. I wonder if the hosts Stephanopoulos and Gibson were in cahoots with the Clinton campaign. They call her a 'fighter." – I call her a mean bully, the kind of person who will kick you until you fall, then lie, "I didn't do it – he started it first – A dangerous person to be leading our country in these trying times.

    I'm glad that were to the point where stories are run on pure heresay directly from the campaign. Thanks, CNN, way to contribute some investigative journalism to find out how much they really raised.

    So if she does raise 10 mill today then what will all her voters do until the next retirement check comes?

    Indiana will make the difference. We all knew she was going to win Pennsylnia. Indiana will make history and the Clintonians will get their tails between their legs.

    Like she needs the money.

    One thing that I will never do is to donate money for candidates especially for the candidates who has over hundreds of million dollars.
    People be smart why should you donate money to these people? Think about it, how many starving people can you feed with $10 million?

    The PA Department of State's unofficial numbers as of today, 04/23/08 are 54.3/45.7%, indicating an 8.6% difference. Even with generally accepted rounding rules, it seems the reporting should be: 54/46% with a 9% difference not a "huge double-digit win". Please report accurately. Thank you.

    Hillary is a power house. She will be the next president of the US. And it seems as though Obama supporters and getting scared. The only thing she needs is the popular vote, which she already has. Because Obama and his supporters know that the DNC is going to seat the delegates from MI and FL. Obama will make a good VP or he can just enjoy his Senate Seat. 10million is 10million.

    Clinton08 / Obama VP maybe, maybe not
    but definitely Clinton 08

    Hillary made 10 mil and Obama lost 11 million in PA. Things are evening up. You know , it's no wonder you Obama people are losing. According to you Old people are either too old to change or Racist. That is completely prejudice. Someday you all will be older and see the error of your ways. Young people always feel that they are immortal. It just doesn't happen. Older people are smarter cuz they have seen it all.

    Hillary is our next president. It's the story of the turtle and the Hare.

    Go Hillary!!!!!!!

    Yes, Madam President, we are here and ready for this fight!!!

    Donating to Hillary's campaign is like backing a losing gambler who keeps telling you to give her more, and she'll make you proud.

    You give her everything you've got, and still have nothing to show for it....

    Maybe you can feel better knowing that at least the gambler herself has had a good time!

    Obama 2008!

    Wow, a whole 10 million? Now she can finally pay off her debts.

    "Game-changing"? Yes, the stakes are even higher for Clinton because she didn't get the blow-out in Pennsylvania that she needed. She now needs 71% of the remaining votes to catch Obama.

    Time for the superdelegates, and the media, to do the math.

    Now I'm spotting comments (from the kiddies no doubt – they've got nothing better to do than sit online) about McCain and Clinton being too old.

    Anybody that can go through the election process can take just about anything.

    And McCain has come through things almost no one could. Have you ever read about just what they did to him in prison? I think he'll be just fine.

    The parties makes it cost this much.

    The State Legislation selects the electors for the office of the President.

    The Federal legislation has no place in the election but for the final counting.

    The people elect the State legislature, elect the Federal representatives and Senators, but the people have no direct connection to the President but what is provided by the party.

    The Electors of the President are chosen by the State Legislature as they are not under direct influence or regard to the office of the President. The Electors are likened to non-bias human resource consultants who will select the President based on justified and related merits.

    The people are only customers to a franchise and when complaining to customer service only the clerks or the store management can be removed; the final incorporated president is untouchable unless deemed incompetent by the board.
