How many dozen donuts does it take to run for President? Or, to put it a different way, how much does it cost for donuts when one is running for President? As it turns out, donuts - or dollars for donuts - certainly don't turn into delegates. Here's the running total as of the end of January: Hillary Clinton - $5,950.53 (about 12,000 donuts at Dunkin' prices) Christopher J. Dodd - $3,301.22 Barack Obama - $1,877.28 John Edwards - $253.04 John McCain - $923.70 Mitt Romney — $992.91 Ron Paul - $108.07 Rudolph W. Giuliani’s campaign didn’t itemize doughnuts, but listed a $5,100 bill at Bouchon Bakery in Las Vegas. At least the campaign volunteers didn't go hungry! Annie

Too funny Annie, where did you get that? So Hillary is ahead of Obama at least in donut votes!lol I like your new Avatar by the way. Very nice! No wonder Ron Paul isn't doing so well. He needs to get out there and distribute some more donuts. Thats a pathetic donut count! Same with McCain. How did he get so far ahead with those donut numbers? Maybe Republicans are just too good for donuts? Shalom~Adoniah

Good point - the Republicans probably get caviar for their workers. Annie
