Joe Trippi Discusses Campaign $$$ on Blog Talk Radio

This Thursday (April 5) at 12 noon eastern time, Joe Trippi will join James Boyce and Nate Wilcox on Heading Left's Blog Talk Radio show to talk about the money pouring into the '08 race.  How much money are we talking about?   Huge.   Here's a table with the Hotline's final predictions (on March 30), along with reported fundraising totals:

Sen. Hillary Clinton will raise between $23M and $30M. (RESULT: $26 million plus $10 million from Senate campaign account

Sen. John McCain will raise between $18M and $22M. (RESULT:  McCain raised only $12.5 million.  Sounds like big trouble to me.)

Sen. Barack Obama will raise between $18M and $24M. (RESULT:  According to the Hotline, $21 million or more...I've also heard $24 million is possible)

Ex-MA Gov. Mitt Romney will raise between $19M and $21M. ** Romney is not raising general election money yet. (RESULT:  Romney raised $21 million. Impressive.)

Ex-Sen. John Edwards will raise between $13M and $17M. (Result: Reportedly, Edwards raised "in excess of $14 million.")

Ex-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani will raise between $12M and $15M. (RESULT: Looks like $15 million raised this quarter, plus a transfer of $2 million=$17 million total)

That's a hell of a lot of money, much more than 4 years ago at the same time.  Why is that?  I look forward to some answers from Joe Trippi on this subject.  If you're interested, you can call in at (646) 652-4803.
