I read that the top six contenders; Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Romney, Guiliani, and McCain raised over $100mm in the first quarter of 2007.
Those are my numbers as I added up what I read about each campaign.
Not a dime of that $100mm came from the Gotham Gal and me. We've met and given to Hillary and Edwards in the past. We've voted for Guiliani but don't plan on making that mistake again.
I've been reading Obama's book about his roots, called Dreams From My Father. I've not had the pleasure of meeting this man, but I will tell you that he can write. I am not done with the book but its better than anything I've read by Clinton (both of them) and Gore.
I've got Obama's other book in my nightstand at home. I'm doing my diligence. I'll let you know where I come out when I'm done.
