Hillary and Obama


How can Obama help Hillary pay her campaign fees?  He has already given them a max of 4,600.00 (2,300 to her and her husband).  I am not getting this..what am I missing?

Entry #37

It is very common for a presidential nominee to help pay down the debt of another candidate, especially a frontrunner like her.   Sen Clinton got over 18 million votes and he needs her support as well.   What he is doing to help her is not unusual. The media is just making a big deal out of it this time. If you think about it, if only 200,000 donors (the size of a city) give $50 it will pay off $10 million. So if all of the people who voted for Obama sent $1, her entire debt would just about be cleared. Also, that $2,300 maximum is not a lot of money to some people and those are the people he is appealing to. Hillary Clinton wrote Obama a check for $2,300 to show her support. Your past comments make it obvious you don't like Senator Clinton, but IMHO she really won and he knows it. He knows that without her backing him up, he'll have a much steeper hill to climb in November. In the political world, $20 million isn't really all that much. In Hollywood some actors/directos make more than that filming one picture. However, he cannot take any of his campaign money and contribute it to Senator Clinton, because it was not donated to her campaign. The people need to make their own choices. Frankly, I find the cost of campaigning in this country mind-boggling when people are loses their homes and don't have gas to get to work or food on their tables.

Thanks for letting me post on your blog. I want to correct my typo in the last sentence which should read "losing their homes." Also, I learned what I wrote from watching various news programs. Last comment I typed too quickly and didn't make my point. What he is really asking is for DEMOCRATS to give to their party, and to allocate that money to help pay off some of her debt. She is a very important political figure and will continue to do a lot for the Dems & the country. BTW, you didn't say this, but one message Sen Clinton is spreading is that a vote for McCain out of spite is wrong. Many of her 18 million supporters, and those who weren't counted or didn't vote or couldn't attend one of those caususes Obama won, need to know that he's a team player and cares of our country & everyone - Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, Male, Female, Rich, Poor) Believe me, winning the election is worth a lot more than $10 or $20 million to him. Also, Bill Clinton is a great lawyer and political strategist and Obama can learn a lot from him. After all, he won the presidency twice and still appeals to a wide range of people. I know - I still don't trust Obama 100% so I'm one of the voters Bill & Hillary need to convince!!
Okay, I'm done! :-)

Justxploring said it all LittleOldLady...the only thing I'd like to add is this...If Obama get elected (and I think he will) he can always be empeached if he messes up! Give the man a chance. I think he's going to do a great job. We can't get anyone in the white house any worse than George W. Bush who needed to be empeached, and wasn't!!!

I wasn't downgrading Hillary and I do respect her because she is smart. I just had never heard of one political candidate helping another one pay their campaign bills. I gave 25.00 to Obama's campaign and I have never given to any political campaign before. How do we help her pay her bill down? Do we give to her directly or what?
