31. Normally the front leader
might send some e-mails asking for donations to the other candidate to help with their finances. It's not like Obama is going to write a backroom check to the Hillary campaign, especially since she is even charging interest on the money she loaned her campaign.

3. I am choking on that. Those of us who have dug deep & sent in small donations can't rescue her.

Or at least I hope he wouldn't do that.

I think Russert has changed his shirt though... lol.

14. I'd say Obama can pay 35% of her debt now if she agrees to get the hell out of TV
and endorse and support Obama - and pay her minimum wage to work for the campaign ENTHUSIASTICALLY until November, and formally retire her debt the day after her GE. AND she agrees to forgive her 5m loan (it's a lost cause) and repay back the interest that she accrued on the loan.

24. If it means she goes away, and the people she has stiffed get their money
Then I am all for it. But he shouldn't cover any money owed to her pollsters or advisers. She should pay for those leeches out of her own pocket.

42. Good point. The question is are WE willing to buy her off. Obama is just
the middle man for our money. I am, because Obama can't use primary money in the G.E. What the heck. Pay her off.

After all, didn't she WANT everyone's votes to count?

Let hubby pay off her debts if she couldn't get enough voter support.

Obama doesn't owe her a damned thing.

39. That would actually be very smart of him.
You want to send a message to Hillary's supporters that you're alright, relieving her of a 10 digit debt load she racked up attacking you constantly isn't a bad way to do it. It's a hell of a magnanimous gesture, anyone worried about unity once Hillary drops out should love this idea. The potential benefit is actually cheap at the cost considering the deep pockets Obama's base has provided him with.

I wonder if the offer has been on the table for a while (perhaps along with VP?), and Obama has just not seen the need to take her up on it?

Why in the hell aren't Hillary's SUPPORTERS willing to help her pay off her debt and keep their golden girl afloat?

This is sheer insanity how we can allow someone to align with the right wing and then suggest that we help them pay off their debts.

55. It was third hand information. I don't think any deal has been made,
but I am sure these kinds of things are being floated in backroom deals. I think everything is on the table. But what is being SERIOUSLY considered, well I don't know.
