    I have wondered about this since I began seeing the first discussions of the topic around the time of the Texas and Ohio primaries.  I appreciate the fact that there now seems to be an answer.  

    It is amazing to me how even those in the MSM who are quick to disparage the blogosphere can blithly float this topic without even bothering to check on basic facts like the legality of such a move.

    Given Obama's decentralized funding structure dominated by small donors, it might be difficult for him to raise funds to retire the debt of a multicentimillionaire who accumulated that debt in the course of savaging their candidate unfairly, mercilessly, and without regard to the potential consequences to the party's fortunes in November.  

    Personally, I don't give a crap if she backs out or not, and I REALLY don't care if she has the funds to run for re-election.  I'd rather see the DNCC find another candidate for the spot.  (But of course, that isn't going to happen.)

    Clinton decided a long time ago to "go for broke".  She's gone broke, alright, both morally and financially, and broke is exactly what she deserves.
