Obama Campaign Raises Money for Hillary Clinton

Four years ago, the Obama fund-raising machine worked to bury Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now his contributors are opening their wallets for her.

Obama campaign officials have asked the president’s elite donors and fund-raisers to donate to Mrs. Clinton’s defunct presidential campaign committee, with the goal of retiring $245,000 in debt left over from her 2008 White House bid. As secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton is barred from engaging in political activity or actively fund-raising for herself.

People familiar with the effort said the campaign’s outreach grew out of discussions with Mrs. Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, who has agreed to headline a series of major fund-raisers for Mr. Obama’s presidential campaign, including one this Sunday at the Virginia home of Terry McAuliffe, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Clinton has also been approached to help raise money for Priorities USA Action, a “super PAC” founded by former Obama aides that has had difficulty attracting donors.

Yep, I sure don’t get this.

Hillary’s campaign is $245,000 in debt? But the Clintons are worth in the tens of millions of dollars. The Clintons don’t have to worry about how to pay their bills. $245,000 compared to the tens of millions the Clintons hauled in after Bill left the White House is like ten bucks out of most of our paychecks, proportionally speaking.

A piddling $245K? Can’t they pay that off themselves?

I think Biden will go quietly. He himself said that Hillary would have been a better choice.
