    I wonder how misleading that is, since the money trend is shifting in the Democrats' favor. Take, for example, Amy Klobuchar's success:

    DFLer Amy Klobuchar edged Republican Rep. Mark Kennedy in the second-quarter chase for Senate campaign money, as their combined fundraising accelerated past $12 million, their aides disclosed Friday.

    Klobuchar narrowed her financial deficit by raising $1.83 million, topping Kennedy's $1.6 million, campaign aides said. Kennedy, who raised $6.7 million through June 30, ended the quarter with slightly more than $4 million in cash. Klobuchar, the Hennepin County attorney, raised a total of $5.6 million and had $3.5 million in cash on June 30.

    Kennedy got Cheney to come hold a big-buck private fundraiser for him, with Rove on tap next. Klobuchar is doing rather well even against these big-buck visits. In fact, Kennedy is going to run out of $1,000-plate opportunities long before Klobuchar runs out of individual small donors. I think this holds true all around the country.

    Are you shaking or biting the invisible hand?
