    Hillary sure knows how to spend money - not how to earn it - but how to spend it

    Can you picture the White House budget if she ever became President?

    Thank God the Electoral College will never allow her to sit in the Oval Office

    Unless she is visiting President Giuliani



    Hillary Spent $13,000 on Flowers

    Some Hillary Clinton supporters are outraged that she spent $36 million on a shoo-in re-election campaign – more than any other candidate for the Senate this year.


    The Democratic Daily, a liberal Web site, said Clinton was guilty of "blowing a shameful $36 million” on a campaign she was never in doubt of winning.


    Among the Clinton campaign’s outlays reported by the New York Times:


    $17 million for advertising and fund-raising mailings.

    At least $1.1 million for Mark Penn, Clinton’s pollster and adviser, and more than $930,000 for Mandy Grunwald, her communications strategist.

    Around $160,000 for private jet travel.

    At least $745,000 for catering and entertaining, including $124,155 for an affair at the New York Hilton.


    More than $50,000 for professional photographers.

    $13,000 for flowers, mostly for fund-raising events and thank-yous to donors.

    $27,000 for valet parking.

    According to the Times, "The campaign’s financial record has fueled some criticism among Democratic activists and prompted concern among Mrs. Clinton’s supporters.”


    Clinton has spent at least $36 million on her re-election since 2001, when she took office, and in mid-October had only $14 million on hand.


    That’s barely more than potential presidential rival Sen. John Kerry, who had $13.8 million at the end of September, while another rival, Sen. Evan Bayh, had $10.6 million.

    Clinton did receive 67 percent of the vote to win re-election to the Senate. But her fellow New York Sen. Charles Schumer received 71 percent of the vote in 2004 while spending only $15.5 million.

    "The wasting of money – it drives everybody crazy,” one Clinton fund-raiser, who was granted anonymity, told the Times. "She’d better get a handle on this if she is going to run for president.”

    I don't 'see' Hillary winning. But who saw GW winning so large in 2004? Hold onto the hat!

    Lieberman and the fact that the polls show the people don't want pull out. At the same time, they elected those that ran on such.

    Kathianne, with all do respect, Pres Bush did win big in 04

    He got 12 million more votes then he did in 2000

    He gained both House and Senate seats in 2004

    Republicans need to get back what brought them to the dance, and Hillary may be the answer.
