What happened to Jerome Armstrong and Natasha Chart? Haven't seen anything from Natasha in quite some time; we could use less water-carrying on the front page.
Articles titled "Obama Donors Aren't Rushing to Aid Clinton" to be published in tomorrow's New York Times are probably not too helpful to the cause of unity at this time. I have no idea why one of Obama's donors, who wished to remain anonymous, decided to show some snoopy NYT reporter the e-mails he had received in response to his plea to other Obama donors that they help Hillary with her debt. Read the article yourself:
So, Obama donors have only coughed up around $100,000, excluding pledge amounts, to Hillary's debt. I thought that the number would be around $500,000 by now but then again, there's a lot of juicy stuff in the article, probably by people with an axe to grind because none of these people should be disclosing these details to some scumbag reporter looking for a story.
Donors from both sides should probably learn how to shut up and keep their inner bitterness to themselves rather than expressing it to the press; they should take a page from their respective candidates. Obama donors should ask themselves what more do they want out of Hillary Clinton and Clinton donors should probably ask themselves what more do they want Obama to do about her debt, considering that he has to raise money for himself at the same time.
Everyone says its common for the winner to help out the runner-usp with their debt; I'd like someone to find out how much John McCain has helped out Rudy Guiliani or Mitt Romney with their debt.
