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.

    Maybe now she can pay her bills.

    In her mind im sure she hasnt even thought about paying her bills, instead she is going to use it to further her mad plunge into ruining the Democrat's chances in the GE.

    So she is basically throwing away her supporters money for something that she cannot mathematically or realistically achieve.

    Uhh...That doesnt really sounds like someone I want running the country.

    Iif she was so "in touch" with the people that gave her the win in Penn she would give it back to them because they will actually use it for something smart, like the mortgage...

    Obama's campaign is in trouble and they know it. Hillary is a true patriot and is proud of her country. She didn't sit in an anti-american church for TWENTY YEARS.

    Personally, I do not have any problem with Hillary. As I understand "personality disorders," she strongly believes that "there is nothing wrong with her." I work with these kinds of folks everyday- they abuse their spouses and blame their spouses for all the problems in the relationship.

    My problem is with those who "fail" to see or recognize the psychopathology (a mental health issue) in this family! They continue to support the Clintons, totally blind to their "history" in this nation. Or probably blinded by wealth or the "image of a "fighter" and not a "peace-maker." God bless us all!!

    Ok, Obama will, raise you 40 million and only has 650,00 in debt compared to your 10 million in debt Hillary. Let's see who has the most after April girl. I am sending another 1000.00

    I thought Pa residents were smarter than this, but I really think the Republicans cameout and voted for Hillary again because they know she can't be McCain.

    Paleeze! Can we really believe what her campaign says? Sure she will raise 10 mil in 24 hrs, just as she raised the 20 million. NOT!! I'm sure whatever number her campaign provides that TOO will be a LIE!!!

    As an Independent voter and a black, I will support her now because she proves that she is a fighter. She is tough enough to give us back our economy and deal terror.

    Me and my friends will be Clinton volunteer in NC.

    They never and I mean never do any substantive journalism or investigations any more. They get e-mails from the Clinton staff and give the media there talking points and just like puppets the media goes on the air and perform for her. Why won't hey ask her why voters should vote for her with her campaign over 10 million debt.

    Obama is a master at raising money and runs his campaign with ruthless efficiency, I wonder if he will run the government the same way.

    I wonder if the people who are supporting her, are still going to donate money. Even though she is going to blow it or misspent it on pastries, food and other frills. She and her husband have made over 109 million over the last six years from 2000 to 2006. They obviously do well handling their own personal income, why can’t they run their campaign with the same efficiency?

    Some of her bills tell the story (one-time expenses)

    Enterprise Rent-A-Car – $171,675
    Hertz – $46,319
    Bellagio hotel – $25,478
    A-Plus valet parking – $918
    Donuts – $1433
    Subway – $2500
    Hyvee supermarket – $96,079

    Total over 8.7 million still in debt

    HRC and the media have conducted themselves miserably over the past few weeks. It actually sickens me to see her smile after her disgusting performance. Sorry but that is how I feel. If she is such a good executive, why is her campaign out of money and and hurting so bad she has to play dirty rovian politics just to tread water? If she had been smart she would not have to lie or play dirty rovian politics and she would have had plenty of money. She is not presidential at all and not a good executive

    I don't know what RCP you're reading Ric, but Obama is still up in the popular vote by 500,000. You can't seriously count Michigan if Obama wasn't on the ballot and even if you do count Florida (where no one advertised), he's still up by 200,000.
    Hillary has to win close to 80% of the remaining Superdelegates to get the nomination even if she wins every single state other than North Carolina by 10 points.

    Hillary, you are the one that we want! You showed us yet again that you are super cool, calmed, and collected. This is your moment. Go Hillary. You can do this.

    Sidney Poitier tells a story about his only creative input in the 1967 film In The Heat of the Night. During the scene where Police Chief Bill Gillespie (Rod Steiger) slaps Det. Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier), Sidney insisted he slap Gillespie back. This was 1967 and a risky position. Sidney's reaction slap got in and it was the turning point in the film, the film industry and society. Maybe Mr. Obama should make a commercial out of this ground breaking scene and show it at a bunch of community senior centers.

    Hillary supporters – just take the money and flush it down the toilet. That way you won't be helping screw up the chances of the REAL nominee. We are burning some $3 million per day just stretching this thing out. He's still 155 – 160 delegates ahead and you just used your big chip. The rest of the states will be a net plus for Obama.

    Fortunately, I still believe that we can beat McCain in November, despite the damage being done. However, this money makes it worse – but its your to waste if you really want to. Just think about the real end result, please. Hillary will not win. Sorry, but that's the way it is. The campaign mismanagement ruined her chances two months ago. Reality is reality – not what you want it to be.

    Obama 08! Yes we can!

    Sooo Hillary, when Obama wins NC by 15 %, what's the point of splitting Indiana ? You're farther behind than you were 8 weeks ago.
    End the madness, stop campaigning for 2012, and try to save a little dignity.

    Well done Pensylvania, no wonder everyone is packing their shops and moving to other countries. Then you say NAFTA is bad. Remember who signed NAFTA and who was the cheer leader. It tells a lot how much these older generation and blue coller workers can be sucked into believing Hillary is going to work for them. Good luck lets see what happens in NC. If the donations payoff.
