WASHINGTON -- As Sen. Hillary Clinton faces a money crunch, several of her top fund-raisers are considering using independent organizations to wage their own campaigns on her behalf.
At least two sets of Clinton fund-raisers are speaking with lawyers to figure out how to create independent entities to support Mrs. Clinton in Ohio, Texas and other primary contests. Susie Tompkins Buell, the founder of the Esprit clothing company, says she is deciding whether to start her own entity to fund commercials for Mrs. Clinton, or whether to donate to existing groups, such as abortion-rights group Emily's List, that are already spending money on Mrs. Clinton.
It's not certain that any of the efforts by the Clinton fund-raisers will get off the ground. Campaign-finance law makes it difficult for campaign insiders to fund independent efforts to elect candidates.

till their boycotted
There are loopholes built into McCain-Feingold exactly for this purpose.
Watching the Clinton's destroy their party...
Campaign finance laws are unconstitutional. Political Parties are extra-Constitutional.
Why has Hillary still not addressed her big losses yesterday? She went to Texas and didn’t even mention that it was election day in 2 states and DC yesterday.
Why did she make a point to go to Florida to claim victory in that state’s non-binding primary, because she won, but ignores states that she loses?
Why do her flunkies come out and say that all the states she loses don’t count for some reason? i.e. caucuses aren’t democratic, “red” states that Obama won won’t go Democrat in November anyway, states with big black populations going for Obama is just a black pride thing, which they totally honor and support, yadda, yadda, yadda.
Other than a COMPLETE Obama table run, which proportional assingment prevents, there is NO WAY that the Democrat nominee gets selected without the SUPER-DELEGATES being bought now.
PENNSYLVANNIA becomes the biggest prize of all now.
This is devolving into a nightmare with the Progressive hero’s pimping themselves out for the highest dollar at convention, for ALL to see, live on Ntaional TV...
Maybe they should revive “The Hillary I Know” campaign. After all, once we get to know the real Hillary, we will like her and appreciate all that she wants to do.
Why not revive the “turn up the heat on Republicans” campaign?
We know the Clintons won’t go negative because she said she wasn’t interested in attacking her opponents.
And Bill Clinton made factuallly correct statements about Obama, didn’t he?
where is Bill anyway? I thought he was her secret weapon, her ace in the hold in the campaign.
Best case scenario for a democrat defeat:
Obama continues to roll, picking up 90-95% of the Black vote, but not quite enough delegates to lock up the nomination. The Clinton’s then do their arm-twisting, bribing, “I’ve got your FBI files” tricks on the super-delegates, and she ekes out the nomination. Black voters, who have, in the past, falsely claimed incidents of disenfranchisement due to republican chicanery, now experience the real thing, causing them to stay home in droves. Voter turnout in some inner city precincts in St. Louis, Detroit, and Philadelphia will be the lowest in a half-century, in some cases as low as 110% of the number of registered voters.
You’ve got it. That’s exactly why I want to see the Witch win in Texas and Ohio.
THROWN AWAY MONEY!!! Yes!! Liberals....spend it all!
You haven’t seen a fight yet. I’m telling you the Clintons are ruthless and they are surrounded by scum bags like Wolfson and Ickes. Those guys would cut their mothers’ throat for another vote.
