25. her donors maxed out and she didn't have new ones - she's getting some new one's now
but only about 1/3 of Obama's and he still has his original donors to rely on as well.

And yes she did ask for money - I received email after email after email asking for money. I'm glad she's raised $5 million to date (and we don't know how much more she'll kick in herself) Of course that's $4 million less than Obama raised and he managed his money correctly so still has more that Clinton does.

As for the FEC report - none of us will see it until April 15th which is what Clinton was hoping for - that none of us would know about her self-funding until then. But somebody either spilled the beans or figured it out. (why wouldn't I believe the campaigns about how much they have and how much they've spent? Would they lie or cover it up?)
