UPDATE: Mine is bigger than yours: The wasteful election fundraising process

Barack Obama's people announced, today, that in the first 3 months of 2007 he raised 25 million dollars from a mere 100,000 donors!!

Hollywood, thank Hollywood.

Apparently, they were all the $2,300 limit. Does that make sense? I'm no good at math.
and if he wins the nom, each donor can give another $2,300.

Yup.. Hollywood!! Scary!

I find it an amazing feat for someone who will not win, Hilary must be hated that much!

Thankfully, if they don't they have to return the money!
As for La Hill...I think she is much hated, by many, but if the amount of money she raised is any indication, still loved by lots.
