Hillary raises 8 million for Obama

Whether Obama wins or loses, one thing they will not be able to say is that Hillary didn't try hard enough. The girl has been a rockstar raising money in states where Obama is weak.
From USAToday

WASHINGTON - Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton has raised more than $8 million for former rival Barack Obama's presidential campaign since July and plans to barnstorm the country for even more cash, as the New York senator works to show she is aggressively helping the candidate who cut short her White House bid.

"I am using every tool that I have to help Democrats win," Clinton told USA TODAY. She was between fundraising events in Texas and California that brought in another $1.5 million for Obama and congressional candidates on Friday and Saturday.

Later this month, Clinton will headline Obama fundraisers in Chicago, Philadelphia and Little Rock along with 11 events to raise money for Democratic congressional candidates and state parties.

She is stepping up efforts to get more Democratic women elected to the Senate. On Friday, she issued an e-mail fundraising appeal for Louisiana incumbent Mary Landrieu and challengers Kay Hagan, who is locked in a tight battle against Republican Sen. Elizabeth Dole in North Carolina, and former New Hampshire governor Jeanne Shaheen, who is engaged in a repeat of her close 2002 race with GOP Sen. John Sununu.

The former first lady said in the interview late Friday that her goal is straightforward: "We have a lot to repair in America, and I believe that Democratic leadership is essential to fixing the damage that we are going to inherit."

I love and trust Hillary..... but I am not voting for Obama (it would be like voting for Satan). Just because Hillary ran against the devil and it didn't work out, that shouldn't mean we should vote him in. What if she ran against Hitler, after all this is a free country? Should we feel forced to vote for Hitler (just because this country doesn't respect or trust a woman of power)?

Hillary was my only choice and now most everyone else knows she was the best choice. I hope all those people who didn't have a clue about what they were getting into ..... get what they deserve.

I would rather trust a up tight war hero (at least he fought for this country) and a woman of faith (at least she respects life) then Obama.

Now Obama's "the devil"?

Wow.

Obama's voting record is very similar to Hillary's. Obama's positions on the issues are very similar to Hillary's.

So if Obama's the devil, what doest that make Hill?

I previously suppported Hillary and donated money to help pay her debt. I will not vote for Mr. Obama either. I just cannot understand how Hillary trusts this man. I am disappointed in Hillary.

beth said...

Maybe having worked with him in the Senate for several years, she has good reason to trust him?

Just a though.

Obama, the empty suit full of empty promises. Clever enough to seize a rare chance to win an easy election, but not able to close the deal without help from his rivals, both now and after the election, when the disappointments of his failures to deliver on promises will rival the massive disappointments of #43. NoObama 08 & Hillary 2012 & 2016.

You're crazy if you turn your back on Obama.
Go ahead, throw Hillary under the bus.
Some supporters you are. You obviously don't give a darn about the future. All you care about is your anger and if people still want to put up with your whining.
You know what...we don't!

Obama shouldn't even be the candidate...his underhanded ways..he'll NEVER cut it as our POTUS....there is no way that I'll vote for him...I don't trust him..he's scary...and, in my heart...I truly don't believe that Hillary or Bill support him...she's doing what was expected of her to do...She goes out on a limb to raise all of that money and he couldn't even help her to payoff her campaign debt...just proves that he can't keep his word...and, why doesn't that surprise me...A true blue liar...just to look at him...can tell he can't be trusted....I'm still waiting for the "October Surprise" where someone/something will bring him down off of his high horse!! He'll deserve it...after all he has done to Hillary!!! WE need a man who has "experience" and puts his country first...not...someone that says that IF he's needed..just call...what kind of baloney is that...AMERICA better wake up before November 4th!!

I am a Democrat and voted for Hillary because I trusted her and know where she comes from as per Obama I hear so much of his past association and will not vote for MCcAIN because I know him and know about his background......................So Hillary will not convince me at all to vote for Obama

I do not understand women like beth. She reminds me of the wives of men who beat them and then say they love him. To compare Hillary with Obama is nonsense. Their political leanings may be similar but their characters all miles apart. I just came from the local democratic hdqtrs when dropping off call lists supporting a democratic challenger for congress. When responding to a query from the manager of the office as to my support of Obama, without reason she offered that she has a PhD. Guess she is one the that intelligent group Obama's campaign points out that is supporting him and then went on with McCain overturning Roe v Wade and that Obama is a constitutional lawyer. Needless to say although I continue to support the democratic candidate for congress, I will no longer volunteer my time to a party that does not support diversity of opinion. I make no apology for not having a PhD. It does not take those credentials to recognize a MSM promoted fake and fraud.

Not all Ph.D are for Mr. Obama.
I have Ph.D.in Sciences and was a Hillary supporter, but I am not going to give my vote to Mr. Obama as Hillary suggetsed. Several of my Ph.D. friends will not vote for Obama either.

We will vote McCain/Palin 2008, and Hillary next time

I too am disappointed in Senator Clinton. After what Obama. Dean/Brazile/Kerry/Kennedy did to CLinton, Senator Clinton would have been so wiser to have gone back to her Senate Seat, or run as an Independent, to show her supporters she related to them and trusted them, but, she didn't..to me she has ened her career and I for one will never vote for her or support her again...I trust McCain, and I have complete confidence in both him and Gov. Sarah Palin..she is awesome. She is Pro-life, and what a step to try to get back to some of morality we once had.....Roe vs. Wade was not meant as a means of Birth control for irresponsible women...it was meant as a last resort for rape victims, the mothers health and young teens who through lack of information, found themselves in a situation they are not equiped to handle,...again, not as a birth control.
So for me it's Senator McCain..and Gov. Sarah Palin..Maybe if we return to our older ways of morality and respect for life, and live conservative qnd not far left liberal lives, we can get back to the kind of family a lot of us long for now. So as to Senator Clinton..it was great while it lasted, but, it is over...we do not vote for the party, we vote for the person. We want a moral, wise and loyal and EXPERIENCED person.,....who we know what they have done, who they ASSOCAITE with...because after all, as my mom use to say, "You are Judged by the Company you Keep."

"I do not understand women like beth. She reminds me of the wives of men who beat them and then say they love him."

Because I pointed out to you that Obama's positions on the issues are very similar to Hillary's? lol!

The more you say things like that, the more desperate and irrational you look.

I've never been beaten by a man in all my life.
I voted for Hillary and I support her in HER support for Obama.

I am insulted that you would compare women like Beth and I to someone who's been beaten by a man!
You have NO CLUE who we are and that we are strong, educated women.

It just illustrates to me the desperate and LOW BLOWS you all will make to not only denigrate Hillary but her supporters who support Obama as well.

I'm beginning to think some of you will turn against women like us, throw Hillary under the bus just because she's campaigning for Obama, and vote for a ticket that is so blatantly AGAINST women's issues/rights...just because you're still POd that Obama is the Dem. nominee.

I'm glad I'm not in YOUR corner....and I doubt Hillary is ,either.
But then, you really don't give a rap about Hillary after all.
It isn't about her.
It's about YOU and YOUR anger.
I hope Obama wins and that you'll eat your words.
