Money Talks

Very interesting stuff. Makes it hard to argue "the inevitable" when your opponent has more money from more donors. Unless this is all a bluff. Either way, it bears watching.

Hillary concedes victory to Obama in dash for cash

WASHINGTON -- With the second quarter closing on Saturday, Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson said in a memo the campaign expects to take in at least $27 million, conceding that Barack Obama will be collecting "significantly" more in April, May and June.

The Clinton campaign did not break down how much of that $27 million was for the primary and how much was given for the general election contest.

The only figure that counts politically is money raised for the primary election. Obama's second quarter haul, according to estimates of knowledgeable observers, could reach $30 million -- most raised for the primary.
