John Kerry and Ted Kennedy each gave a Million Dollars. What about Hilary?
John Kerry has been raising money hand over fist for other candidates and has donated several million dollars and just last week donated another million dollars as well as Ted Kennedy. HILARY CLINTON HAS BEEN RAISING MONEY HAND OVER FIST FOR HERSELF. WHY HASN'T SHE BEEN DONATING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO HELP OTHER SENATE CANDIDATES.

1. She Was One Of The First To Give
She gave before anyone. A whole lot already.

17. No doubt about it..
Hillary has been the top donor to Dem candidates so far..

"The DSCC has $9.7 million in the bank. So far, the committee has raised $104 million for candidates. Those numbers don't reflect a pair of $250,000 donations from Sens. Edward M. Kennedy and John Kerry. It does, however, include the more than $2 million this cycle from Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton."

31. Actually that's not correct!
Hillary gave about $2 million recently, but hasn't contributed much more than that.

Kerry had already contributed more than $2.5 million to the Democratic committees; this additional $500K brings that total to $3 million.

Kerry has also contributed more than $12 million directly to candidates and Kennedy $9 million.

3. I applaud Kerry and Kennedy, but I think you need to provide a link
before disparaging any Dem. This is not the time to do that!

19. I am not a Hilary Hater. I just know she has been raising a lot of money.
John Kery has been accused of not giving enough. He has given plenty and raised plenty.

21. (shrug) Fine. Then I guess you just have a *general* disregard of...
... the truth.

As has been pointed out several times in this thread, Clinton has given 2-3 TIMES what you said Kerry gave. If you cared the truth, you could've looked that up yourself before posting.

Clinton gave that 2.5-3.5 million BEFORE the outcry over Democratic fatcats not giving enough. She didn't have to be shamed into it.

Could she give more? Of course. Should she? Almost certainly. But to compare her *unfavorably* to Kerry - on that score - is either a flat lie, or idiotically willful ignorance.

6. Yo, Bloo...
that's a couple of DUers. Don't despair. I'm not a major fan, but I have not and will not attack a Dem, especially now. And may the best man or woman win as far as 08 goes.

7. Please do some research before you smear.....
http://www.tray.com/cgi-win/x_candpg.exe?DoFn=S0NY00188 *2006

If you look through her contributions 2004-2006 she has disbursed somewhere around 1.5 million directly to candidate PaCs. Another million to several 501c3 and 501c4. While harder to track, keep in mind that any event she attends are commonly used by those group to raise money. I'm sure she probably appears at 2-3 fundraising events PER WEEK.

One other thing you're overlooking. SHE'S RUNNING FOR REELECTION! John Kerry and Ted Kennedy are not. She can't afford to run around the country raising money, she's trying to show she can carry the Red Areas of New York too.

12. Good Post, But Actually Kennedy IS Running I Believe
But he's totally safe and has no real challenge, so he gives anyway, because he doesn't need as much to defend his seat.

13. Yes, Ted is up for election
Hillary is carrying the state with something like 65% and wouldn't have to spend another dime to win. So perhaps you should do a bit more research as well.

And $1.5 million when she's raised $30+ million isn't much of anything.

10. she recently coughed up another $2 million
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 10:41 PM by AtomicKitten
from Boston Globe 10/21/06: http://www.boston.com/news/nation/articles/2006/10/21/k...

Last month, when DSCC officials asked all Democratic senators for last-call financial contributions before Election Day, Senator Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts was among three lawmakers who donated $1 million each. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York signed a check for $2 million.

"Hi! I'm Crazy Hillary! I put babies on spikes. Do you want a rack of babies? We've got babies on racks! Mmm, they taste of chicken!" ... They do! Babies taste of chicken! Cannibals say that human flesh tastes of chicken, so babies must taste of chicken. And chicken tastes of humans. Good, I'm glad you're coming with me on that. * Eddie Izzard

35. Are you askign for a challenge grant?
Sen. Clinton did give $2 million recently and, I think about $9 million or so overall to the effort. It should be detailed in her www.fec.gov site, as it is for all pols.

I believe she gave this a couple of weeks ago. Sen. Kerry had previously given around $13 million through direct grants and through fundraising through his emails appeals and so forth. This money is in addition to what he had already raised.

I do not know who else has decided to donate more money. I would hope that some of it goes directly to the candidates, since I think they hire better ad makers than the national people do.

36. I'm not a fan of Hillary's
But she has given several million to candidates and PAC's. Not only that, but Big Dog is campaigning in some tough races--it costs some major cash to travel all over the country lending his personna to try to help Democrats win in the tightest of races.
Can we stop skewering her now cause I am not sure exactly what else you want her to do?

40. Actually to be exact, each gave $500,000 for a total of $1 million.
That was last week.

Hillary gave $9 million plus kicked in another $2 million last month, totaling $11 million from her war chest. She and Bubba have been doing fundraising for various candidates across the country. Kennedy has donated $1.5 million of his own money and Kerry $3 million from his war chest, and both also have been raising bucketloads of money for candidates across the country.

It's all good.

39. The $9 million
Edited on Sun Oct-29-06 01:18 AM by ProSense
disbursement isn't the same as a contribution to candidates. It simply means she paid bills:

Maybe if you Kerry folks would curtail the comparison and bragging crappola and multiple daily homage threads, people would be nicer all the way around and stop pointing out the discrepancies, flat-out BS, and peccadilloes that really piss you off. Just a thought.

43. They weren't disbursements, they were contributions.
"Sen. Hillary Clinton emptied her campaign account of more than $9M this quarter, pouring millions into Democratic Senate and House campaign committees and writing large checks to individual candidates."

http://hotlineblog.nationaljournal.com/archives/2006/10...

And, then as AtomicKitten wrote, there's an additional $2 million on top of that.
