Cash concerns cancel Clinton events, ads
WASHINGTON -- The cash-strapped campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton has forced curtailments of political events and advertising as the primary season winds down, aides say.
Advisers said Clinton would infuse her Democratic presidential campaign with more of her own money on top of the more than $11 million she already loaned the it, The New York Times said.
Hassan Nemazee, a Clinton national finance chairman, said the campaign raised more than $1 million after her primary loss in North Carolina and her razor-thin win in Indiana.
"We raised a million dollars in a 24-hour period for a candidate that every pundit is saying is either toast or dead on arrival," said Nemazee, who would not discuss the campaign's finances with the Times.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times reported options are being considered to allow Clinton a graceful exit from race with Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, who leads in pledged delegates and popular vote.
One supporter familiar with the campaign said Clinton wanted to leave on an up note, possibly after winning a couple of the remaining primaries. The supporter also said Clinton would want a resolution concerning the seating of Florida and Michigan delegates, who lost their seats the Democratic national convention as punishment for the states' changing their primaries.
"If you've resolved Michigan and Florida and she wins a couple of more states ... and she still can't get the nomination barring an act of God, I don't think she stays in the race," the supporter said.

- FRAUD AND FALSE STATEMENTS
Whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or
judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and
(1) falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or
device a material fact;
(2) makes any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent
statement or representation; or
(3) makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same
to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement
THE BOTTOM LINE.....SENATOR OBAMA LIED AND PLANNED A WRITTEN SCHEME FOR THE PRESIDENCY. He lied and planned a scheme for Illinois Senator.
Practicing Law in the real world and Teaching Law in College is entirely different. Obama as a Law Professor, in college, reviewed the weekness and strength of past caseS. He never was a Constitutional Attorney. He label himself a Constitutional Attorney
Some of the best Attorneys are Prisoners, who have been wrongfully convicted and Represented Themselves... In my Opinion, if Obama felt that he could not win a Case, then, he didnot take it.
To make a long story short, I don't think Hillary would ever consider being your VP Running Mate. You better get that Peanut Farmer from Georgia. Jimmy Carter wouldnot know the different between a Slide Rule and A Calculator...... MORE POWER TO OBAMA and JIMMY CARTER in 2008, NOW YOU CAN LIVE OUT YOUR FANTASY. YOU GOT YOUR ENGINEER.
The Superdelegates better listen to The Superdelegate from ILLINOIS..... If by chance Obama win, then, he will be a weak president. Jimmy Carter was a weak president. That why Iran saw thru the American System And held AMERICAN HOSTAGES under the Jimmy Carter Presidency. America, due to George W. Bush, is almost last in Technology. But, on the otherhand,one of the first in Weapons of MASS DESTRUCTION.
SINCE YOU ARE NOW A QUOTA, I GUESS YOU WILL BRING BACK THE "QUOTA SYSTEM", PUTTING MORE MINORITIES IN POSITION. WHETHER THEY ARE QUALIFIED OR NOT.
