    I don't see a lot of wins for Hillary between now and March 4. Maybe Wisconsin. Maybe.

    And Old Man John's march to the nomination shall continue unabated. Thanks, Huck, for costing me $100. :mad:

    As Obama is on pace for another $30 million month, a report comes out today that HRC loaned herself $5 million last month. Also, it seems many high-level staffers are working without pay right now.

    :) :D ;D

    UPDATE: When I posted this, he was at $4.8 million. He raised more than $300,000 in about a half hour.

    As much as I'd like to see Obama win, I can't imagine Hillary running out of money. And even if she has to cut back on ads, between her name recognition and her surrogates, I can't imagine it being that big a factor.

    Obama has now set the single-day donation record with more than $6 million.

    Bump for Jay. Obama raised $7.5 million. In one day.

    Is it a CNN typo or could someone out in Washington state explain the difference between the Feb. 9 caucuses and the Feb. 19 primaries.

    Hillary's money is either mostly gone, EStreet, or tied up in her general election fund, which she can't touch unless she gets the nomination.

    Obama in January: $32 million
    Hillary in January: $13.5 million (plus $5 million loan, which has already been spent)

    According to Docs list, they may have mistaken Washington's Caucuses for Wisconsin's Primaries.

    So it's a typo. Muppets.

    If it's a typo, it ain't from me. I pulled the list from CNN.
