[lizard queen] raking in the cash

Hillary Clinton has raked in more than $US10 million in just over a week.

The previous fundraising record for the entire first three months of a campaign was set in 2004 by John Edwards, when he led all Democrats with $7.4 million. Ms Clinton topped that with just three events that raised $8.5 million by themselves, capped by a star-spangled soiree on Saturday for 660 at the home of Beverly Hills billionaire Ron Burkle. "It was a lot of work, but it was worth it," said Ms Clinton's California finance adviser Sim Farar.

All right, I'm sorry I ran those posts on the Finance. Forgive me - I take it all back. Now tell me how can I get a slice of the action? Please? There has to be someone out there willing to back me for office.

By the way, I think the numbers of guests [above] is out by 6.

James,

"Now tell me how can I get a slice of the action? Please? There has to be someone out there willing to back me for office."

Please state platform and provide reciprocity arrangements. I will then add requirements to said platform and forward 2 pence and 2 groat for your campaign. Which office are you running for? {;>)

Well I doubt Hillary raised the money herself, she has a very bright team of fund-raisers, but she is the big crowd puller when it comes to raising dollars. Not sure she will do the same with votes.

Winfred - I'll devise the platform on the run. Ellee - Hillary certainly does have a slick team but as you say, maybe that's the end of it.
