    If she's stiffing small businesses like this now, what would she do as Prez?
    This isn't being slow paying a network for a national ad buy. This is sticking it to cleaning companies and caterers.

    Debts more than a month old? Are you insane, linking to this horseshit? It's not unusual for politicians to spend years -- in John Glenn's case more than a decade -- trying to pay off campaign debts. Why don't you Google "campaign debts" and "Giuliani" and see what you come up with?

    While they're still running?

    I've heard of lots of folks who have trouble retiring their debt after they quit and aren't raising any more money.

    But stiffing vendors while the money is still rolling in is a different matter entirely.

    Debts a month old? Have you lost your mind?

    Frank, here's what I'll tell you:

    Stiffing Hy-Vee in Iowa, which is a huge employer in the entire upper midwest -- and is employee-owned, to boot -- has earned her negative publicity all over Iowa, and the entire region.

    I was home a few days ago and met up with two buddies who are managers with Hy-Vee in two different states.

    They both brought it up.

    It also says McCain owes $1.3 million to a dozen vendors.
    So he must be a deadbeat, too.

    Yeah, you're right. And if any of us paid our bills at the same speed as presidential candidates, we'd be sued in a heartbeat.

    My point exactly...and Frank's, too.
    But this thread is ony bashing Hillary, not all Presidential candidates.

    Read the story again, spnited. Obama owes less than $700K, and most of that is to political operatives, not individual businesses. He's been paying his bills. :)

    But McCain apparently hasn't been paying all of his either.

    Look who started the thread. Hondo is as fair and balanced as Fox News.
