Yesterday was a great day for fund raising for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. This is a good sign for the Democratic party.

What I have been noticing from supporters of Hillary Clinton is that they thought she was OK with money. Why they thought this, I just don't know. Maybe because of the early media hype about her early fundraising numbers?

This is something that must be maintained, that is why many of the campaigns have a check box when donating that automatically lets you donate every month. You can still give more but that piece would be automatic.

Many of the Hillary Clinton supporters have started to donate again and many others are donating for the first time. Anyone that thinks Hillary Clinton is not going to have enough money is just being silly.

I do wish the Hillary Clinton website would give a running tally, because it helps to push more donations. It becomes a competitive game.

Do you want to donate again or for the first time? Then go HERE:

Check out this from Yesterday:

Hillary Clinton supporters also need to be better about using the blogs, etc. Don't let the pissing matches scare you off. Recommend the diaries YOU like and comment in them. Push your point of view but don't be rude.

Make this another Big Fundraising Day for Hillary Clinton. Don't sit and wait again, be proactive!

> One last thing, could all of the Obama supporters please keep your little hit comments to a minimum or not at all?

Thank you.

UPDATE: I just saw this at

After Black Wednesday, Clinton raises more than $6 million on the web in 24 hours — campaign manager Solis Doyle and all staff being paid again.

Campaign chair Terry McAuliffe plans 4pm ET conference call to tout the turnaround.

UPDATE 2: This from the NY Times:

Terry McAuliffe, the national chairman for the Clinton campaign, is reporting right now on a conference call with the campaign’s finance committee that the campaign has raised $7.5 million online in the first week February, with about $6.4 million of that in the last 24 or 30 hours.

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.
