No, these are friends of long-standing, who raised money without inducements. And by the way, did you note how they included Pataki and Owen, who are GOVERNORS?
The difference is that Clinton actually had a list of how much money you had to raise before you got to stay at the White House, and many times he wasn't even there.

I agree that the differences pointed out are legitimate differences between the two administrations. However, this sort of thing has the ability to give the "appearance" of impropriety and appearances will influence some people's thinking. The press will now use this type of issue to try to attack the president's character after giving the last administration a pass on it. Why provide any ammunition for the enemy?
