As mentioned below, Q1 is the low-hanging fruit. One key nugget, as the data starts coming in (and campaigns don't have to report until the 15th), is how many individual donors each campaign had. I'm willing to bet some correlation between those numbers, and the campaigns who can keep up a strong fundraising pace.

Hillary Clinton: $36 million, 50,000 donors, includes $10M transfer from Senate campaign
Mitt Romney: $23 million
Rudy Giuliani: $15 million
John Edwards: $14 million
Chris Dodd: $9 million, includes $5M transfer from Senate campaign
Bill Richardson: $6 million
Joe Biden: $4 million, including $1M transfer from Senate campaign

Note, not all this money is available for primary races. A further breakdown when campaigns report will determine how much is primary money and how much is general election. Donors are allowed to give $2,300 for each. $1 million of Edwards' money, for example, is general election money. A sizeable portion of Giuliani's money is as well, supposedly. All of Romney's money can be used in the primary.

Nothing yet from McCain or Huckabee (who has fallen off the face of the earth). And what about Obama? Is he holding back to make a splash surprise announcement? It wouldn't be a bad idea to play coy for an extra day if he's got huge numbers to report.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
