Taking advantage of Hillary's cash crunch is a smart move on the part of Obama's campaign - I've always said that her campaign relied on her being an inevitable juggernaut. Pointing out she has to use her personal money and that he has managed to raise almost as much in a day or two puts a serious dent in that image.

By the way, the media isn't ignoring Hillary's $5 million "loan" to her own campaign, and I'm certain this will hit the media outlets tomorrow adding to the pain.

Obama's at 7.35 million now.

Anywho, Hillary raising $4 million is certainly good for her campaign, but the question is whether she can keep it up. That she had to loan $5 mil from her own purse probably encouraged her supporters to donate to try to make up for it, but it also energized the Obama supporters into donating as well. Even with a fundraising disadvantage Hillary can still be formidable, but again she has to at least get enough donations to stay competitive.
