This morning Barack Obama’s team sent out an email declaring that Obama won the most delegates on Super Tuesday and that Hillary lent her campaign $5 Million of her own money. The first part of the statement is up to the powers that be at the Democratic party; however, let us take a minute to analyze the second part of the statement.

Does it matter if she gave her own money? Romney has been bankrolling his campaign all along, as have many politicians in the past. The fact that Hillary was forced to contribute her own money to the campaign is only because Hillary has been so selfish all along. She has acted like she deserves to president and WE should pay for it with donations. This attitude of entitlement is familiar to the Clinton family as evidenced by their theft of White House furnishings in 2000 and Bill’s highest post-office perks ever. Obama is pointing out that that Hillary is finally feeling desperate enough to come out of her selfish mode and help herself. My conclusion from Obama’s email (copied below) is that Hillary’s donation makes both Clinton and Obama look bad: Obama for not donating his own money, and Hillary for not donating money until she got desperate.

I was writing a note to you about the state of the race after Super Tuesday when we got some startling news.

The Clinton campaign just announced that Hillary and Bill Clinton injected $5 million of their personal fortune into her campaign a few days ago.

This is a dramatic move, and a clear acknowledgement that our campaign has the momentum. We saw undeniable evidence of that last night as the results came in.

Barack Obama won the most states and the most delegates on February 5th.

We have gotten to this point thanks to an unprecedented outpouring of support from ordinary Americans.

To date, more than 650,000 people like you have taken ownership of this campaign, giving whatever they can afford.

The Clinton infusion of $5 million — and there are reports it could end up being as much as $20 million — will give them huge resources for the next set of primaries and caucuses.

Thanks to you, we have raised more than $3 million since the polls closed on February 5th. But we have no choice — we must match their $5 million right now.

We’re going to do it the right way, with small donations from people like you. It’s never been more urgent that you make a donation of $25 right now:

Just two weeks ago we were behind by double-digits in many of the states that voted yesterday, but Barack won 13 states to 8 states for Hillary Clinton, with one state (New Mexico) still counting votes.

This is an enormous victory, and it’s all thanks to you.

We won yesterday because thousands upon thousands of individual supporters canvassed their neighborhoods, talked to their neighbors and friends, and made phone calls to remind their fellow supporters to get out the vote.

And we accomplished all of this with a campaign funded by ordinary people giving only what they can afford.

Yesterday was proof that America is ready for change — and that you are the force to make that change happen.

But there’s still a long way to go before Barack becomes the Democratic nominee. In the next week alone, six more states will hold their primaries and caucuses.

We need to match this $5 million personal contribution from the Clintons immediately and put these resources to work in the states that will vote next.

Please make a donation of $25 now:

Here are some details about yesterday’s historic victory. According to official results and exit polls:


Barack won 2-to-1 in traditionally conservative states where Democrats are hungry for a nominee who can change the map and help Democrats up and down the ticket win in November

Our winning coalition included Americans of every race, background, and gender — including 64% of women in Georgia

We scored wins in every region of the country — New England, the Mid-Atlantic, the South, the Midwest, the Rocky Mountain states, and the West

Americans had a clear choice to make yesterday, and they chose Barack Obama.

Now let’s match this $5 million and take this campaign into the next stage.

Thank you,


David Plouffe
