I can't think of any good way of responding to this in words, so I will give this picture instead:

What was Ron Paul's record, because it's next.

I don't know, but you're gonna need to update your headline.  They've now crested $5.1 million.

$5.3M. What was Paul's record? Anything attainable?

"Nearly $6 million"

That looks easily breakable at this rate.  The man has literally raised like $400,000 in the last half hour.

I think people would have called anyone crazy who claimed in July of 2007 that as of February 2008 Obama would be raising $30 million a month while Clinton would be having to reach into her own pocket to fund her campaign.

I would have been one of them, too.

As would I.

$5.7 million now.

It's almost a sure thing that this number is going over $6 million before the night is done.

Seriously, when this is over, people will wonder how she has managed to manage her campaign so horribly.
I have been wondering why Obama has destroyed Clinton in the caucus states.  I thought maybe she was just running on the inevitability things, looking to pile up delegates in the big races, and not worrying about the quibbling little details like building infrastructure across the country.  That seemed ridiculously cocky though.

Could there be a financial reason that we are seeing now?  But she had money earlier in the process.  Did Obama invest in a ground game and Clinton ... just blow it?  Seems peculiar.

Did Clinton even visit states like Idaho, Colorado, and Kansas?  I think she was basically just ignoring those, instead focusing on a "swing state strategy" like we saw from both people in 2004.

Could 10 million be a possibility?

Just today?  No.  It's slowing down quite a bit now.

Perhaps fellow New Yorker Bloomberg could drop a cool $50 million into the Clinton for President coffers.  He could well afford it.

If Clinton becomes President, he would then be a sure bet for cabinet.

I support that idea wholeheartedly.  That would be a great way for Clinton to lose the nomination.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton raises $3 in the past 24 hours

Did she find some change on the ground? Cheesy
