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.
Today (2-7 Thursday) Hillary Clinton will be in Seattle, WA. It is in the evening, so I think many of you can make it.

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?
UPDATE: I just saw this at Time.com
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.
