    Don't hold your breath waiting for the 'PUMA's' to call on Hill to turn him down.

    Nothing new. Its politics as usual. Nothing has changed.

    Such a cheap shot. Really it is.
    Keep this in mind the next time you want to point at a politician's debt.

    Obama's campaign was also over $2M in debt that he hasn't paid just a few weeks ago. And currently it's under by $300K. With all the money he has "in hand", he could have taken care of his debt a long time ago. Why is it taking him this long to do that? Maybe you'll want to led him a few dollars to take care of his bills? Banking on Becoming President | OpenSecrets

    Don't let your hate for Clinton blind you from the "politics as usual" rhetoric that every candidate plays. If Obama is offering to take care of Clinton's debt, then it's obvious they made a deal behind the scenes to take care of it. Don't worry about a thing... a Hillary hater such as yourself don't have to go raise a single cent for this. And if you're so upset about Obama helping out Hillary, then take it out on him. Not her supporters. :rolleyes:

    Folks,

    It is all about the federal government restrictions on giving to candidates.

    Many of Hillary's supporters can't give any more to her by law.

    Many of Obama's supporters can't give any more money to him.

    But, by law these supporters can still give to someone else's campaign for president. So Obama supporters will raise money to help Clinton and Clinton supporters will raise money for Obama.

    The only reason Obama is worried about Hillary’s debt is because the democrats are trying to avoid negative press.
