Thanks Giving Thursday -- There's a New Candidate in Town

Money talks, and $25 million says a lot. Barack Obama raised over $25 million in the first quarter of this year alone, a sure sign he is a serious contender for the Democratic nomination. Notably, Obama reported donations from 100,000 people compared to donations from only 50,000 for Hillary Clinton, indicating broader support for Obama and possibly a continuation of the grassroots level of involvement repopularized by the Howard Dean presidential campaign.

Go, Obama! I think he's our only shot at keeping Hilary from being the candidate. Actually, I really like Chris Dodd and Bill Richardson, maybe more than Obama, but I don't think they're well-known enough to be serious contenders.
