"Green" Obama: $25 Million!

Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) showed that he is a real competitor to establishment favorite Hillary Clinton. The well-oiled Clinton money machine garnered $26 million in the first quarter of the year with the expectation of making the coronation inevitable. However, the avatar of Jack Kennedy showed that he is a force to be reckoned with by pulling in a whopping $25 million from an incredible 100,000 donors (double Hill's contributors). The Illinois Senator ridiculed for his greenness in the political process showed he can garner the green from the Democratic base. Penny Pritzker, Obama finance chairperson stated, "This overwhelming response, in only a few short weeks, shows the hunger for a different kind of politics in this country."

Did his #'s reflect a diversion of funds from the MOST expensive Senate race in the history of the US?

On Laura Ingraham this morning, Andrew Breitbart said there were many in Hollywood/LA that loath Hillary.  While the leftist "elite" and movie making proletariat worship Bill, they cannot stomach her even though she is the epitome of the liberals and their agenda.

You know if it becomes Hillary v. Rudy, it will be like the 2000 Senatorial race that didn't happen.  Unfortuantely, America loses either way...

It's crazy, isn't it? I think that a Obama/Thompson race would be incredible: it would be a contest between a real liberal and a true blue (er, red) conservative. People are ready for a change. It would be nice to clean the slate and get some fresh blood in.
