The Money Race for the White House

The race for the White House is years away; however, the money race is starting off red hot as Hillary Clinton leads the race, but that could because she had a race this fall. There are some surprising numbers in the latest campaign finance reports as many candidates for the 2008 Democratic Nomination are constructing an impressive warchest.
- Hillary Clinton : 17.1
- John Kerry : 10.0
- Evan Bayh : 9.5
- Joe Biden : 2.5
- Chris Dodd : 2.0
- Tom Vilsack : 1.6
- Russ Feingold : 0.794
I'm really shocked about Russ Feingold low fundraising with less than a million dollars and that's with the backing of the internet establishment. Maybe the numbers will go up as the Internet Bloc has shown that it can be a fundraising force--Howard Dean?
