Donors Linked to the Clintons Shift to Obama

More good news from the front page of today's NYT.  No wonder Hillary's campaign didn't want to release the breakdown of how much she raised for the primary vs. the general -- Obama smoked her:
Mrs. Clinton raised $19.1 million for the primary, and $6.9 million for use in the general election (accessible only if she wins the nomination).

Mr. Obama raised $24.8 million for the primary and $1 million for the general election.


Donors Linked to the Clintons Shift to Obama

Published: April 16, 2007

WASHINGTON, April 15 — As Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton seeks to reassemble the Democratic money machine her husband built, some of its major fund-raisers have already signed on with Senator Barack Obama.

Among the biggest fund-raisers for Mr. Obama’s campaign are as many as a half-dozen former guests of the Clinton White House. At least two are close enough to the Clintons to have slept in the Lincoln bedroom.

At minimum, a dozen were major fund-raisers for President Bill Clinton. At least four worked in the administration and one, James Rubin, is a son of a former Clinton Treasury Secretary, Robert E. Rubin. About two dozen of the top Obama fund-raisers have contributed to Mrs. Clinton’s Senate campaigns or political action committee, some as recently as a few months ago.
