Barack Obama shocked the political world by raising several million more primary campaign dollars than the supposed fundraising juggernaut of Terry McAuliffe and Hillary Clinton.
The reason Obama was able to do that is demonstrated by the number that got a lot less play -- the total number of contributors. Obama had twice the number of contributors, 100,000 to 50,000. And the reason for that disparity is that Obama is building a movement, while Clinton is treating her supporters like an ATM.
My point still stands.
