Over at TPM Cafe, they have a handy dandy chart that shows how much each of the top 6 Presidential contenders (the 3 Dems and 3 GOPers) raised so far.

Democratic Candidates
Hillary Clinton - $26 million
Barack Obama - $25 million
John Edwards - $14 million
Total: $65 million

Republican Candidates
Mitt Romney - $23 million (including the $2.35 million loan)
Rudy Giuliani - $15 million
John McCain - $12.5 million
Total: $50.5 million

The most shocking thing is that of those 6, John McCain raised the least. It's a pretty bad sign when the front runner performs that poorly (and this was before his Baghdad stroll, of course). I have a sneaking suspicion that McCain's weaknesses, plus the unimpressive campaigns of Romney and Giuliani, will allow the Republican field to grow larger.

I've been saying for a while that Cliff needs to hurry up with the book, McCain is imploding.

You may be right but we all like to beleive he is imploding because of Cliff's good work.

That, uh, and the fact that conservatives hate him, he can't raise money and he has drunk the Bush kool aid on Iraq.
