I’m Not Sure I Would Have Counted on Them

quite so much, considering everything.

…But the campaign is struggling to meet ambitious fund-raising goals it set for the campaign and the party. It collected in June and July far less from Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s donors than originally projected. Moreover, McCain, unlike Obama, will have the luxury of concentrating almost entirely on campaigning instead of raising money, as Obama must do.

Sounds like they were some pretty pie-in-the-sky-high projections for a campaign with ‘women’ problems. WHAT have the Hillary supporters EVER done to give the impression they’d been mollified enough to open their Prada purses?

He and his acolytes are pretty tone deaf, aren’t they?
UPDATE: When it’s not only Hillary types dissin’ you, but your (and Oprah’s, mind you) Chicago HOME BOYS?

Even Obama’s fund-raisers in Illinois were admonished in an e-mail message last Thursday to step up their efforts to “show the other regions that his home state still has it.” The donors, who were also reminded they had each promised to collect $300,000 for the campaign, were asked to raise $25,000 each for an event on Sept. 22 at a Chicago museum.
The new state-by-state goals unveiled by campaign officials in Denver stunned at least some in the room and included sizable increases for at least some states, according to interviews with several Obama fund-raisers.

Contrast THAT with the word out this morning about McHappy and Sarahcuda’s one night haul in…Illinois!

Republican John McCain raised about $5 million in Chicago Monday night, or about $1 million for each hour he spent in Democrat Barack Obama’s home town.

Ouch, man. That’s gotta leave a mark.

    Especially when Hill is hitting them up to cover her debt.
    And Barack hasn’t really come through to help her out.

    First Dirty Harry, and now you with this Oprah-wind-tunnel picture. I almost wish you would stick to the Hoff…

    Here’s one you haven’t heard before…Me thinks McCain ought to dust off about $10 Million from his war chest and pass it over to Hillary to help pay off her $24 Million debt from the primary campaign.
    Obama had, of course, promised to help her pay it off, and hasn’t come through (unsurprisingly). At the same time, McCain should make it clear that he expects her to campaign against him agressively, and would expect nothing less.
    Would it earn votes from the Hillary supporters? Probably not. But, the proper spin by McCain’s team to show true bi-partisan cooperation would nail down a wagon load of moderates.

  4. Hahaha, JR. That WOULD be a bipartisan masterstroke, but I don’t think we’re gonna see it. Hillary’s been great on the trail as much for what she’s NOT saying as for what she IS, God love ‘er.
    Plus, it ain’t over yet and McCain just might need every dime.
