Everybody loves a winner -- or so it seems. In the 24 hours after winning the Pennsylvania primary, Hillary Rodham Clinton raised $10 million -- aided by contributions from 80,000 new donors, according to her campaign http://news.aol.com/?feature=20080423155009990001 DO YOU THINK THAT THIS IS TRUE OR NOT...I MEAN THAT IS A LOT OF MONEY TO RAISE IN JUST TWENTY FOUR HOURS AND IF SHE CAN DO IT WHY CAN'T THE REST OF THE GOVERNMENT TO HELP OUT THE LESS FORTUNATE?

well indeed it is a lot of money.... that rate of getting the money is indeed enormous... hope that such kind of money is raised for some charity work . rather than to get it for some election work.

Wow! That's allot of money, but then again, running for election in the USA is very expensive. Makes you wonder why she's trying to raise all this money to take a $400,000 a year job when she could be become a star for a charity or some corporation.

I heard that she raised the money at the rate of $10 million a day. This means that if 3 people called in and gave $2,000 to $2,500 in the same minute she would be raising at the rate of $10,000,000 a day (24 hours). Slightly different than the impression the story gives. Which is true I don't know but both have been reported as being released by the campaign. It would be nice to know which is true, for nether is a lie.

OMG, I know exactly what you mean...people and companies raise this kind of money for this but will not help the less fortunate.
