The money race

Barack Obama raised $23.5 million in the first quarter of the year; Hillary Clinton raised $26 million, according to ABC news.

After watching the well-funded and ugly Clifford-Ziegler brawl that was the Wisconsin Supreme Court race, this sign of a financially healthy new challenger to one of the most calculating, poll-driven, coat-tail riding people in politics makes me think only that $49.5 million buys a lot of mud.
