Money, money, money

The media has already started trumpeting Hillary Clinton's (R-NY) fundraising prowess--$26 million raised in the first quarter, another $10 million transferred from her senatorial campaign fund (don't be misled if you read $36 million in a fashion suggesting that she raised that much in the first 3 months of 2007).

Clinton's fundraising is impressive, and it demonstrates a strong organization and the commitment of many people to her campaign. (And also the value of being married to an ex-President.) But she has yet to demonstrate that she can put Democrats qualms to rest and actually get votes in competition with other candidates for the nomination.

In other words, we're still seeing inside baseball.
