Campaign Video of the Day -- February 9, 2008

I can't recall two more able candidates with two more devoted groups of supporters. Recently it became clear that Hillary Clinton's fund raising effort was in trouble. Her fat cat friends are maxed out. Small donations from hundreds of thousands of ordinary Americans have funded Barack Obama's campaign. They have continued to give and their ranks have continued to swell. They aren't close to being tapped out. I wrote that Barack's approach is good for democracy. "A chorus of millions of ordinary Americans is crushing the very best fat cat fund raisers in the Democratic party." Even better for democracy is the response of Hillary's less affluent supporters. They have come through for her in spades. Over the last few days 75,000 new contributors have contributed several million to her campaign. It seems that neither candidate is going to lose for want of funds. Now we can get back to the business of selecting a President by evaluating the merits of each candidate.

In I was overwhelmed by the wave of new contributors, Hillary thanks her new donors and shares some of their stories. Do yourself and America a favor and vote with your wallet. Go to your favorite candidate's website and give him or her a donation. You will be happy you did.
