Obama's Clean Cash, Hillary's Dirty Dollars

Obama did not take PAC money. Hillary did. Obama had 250,000 donors. Hillary had 60,000.

The candidate who financed his campaign with lots of smaller donors raised $10 million more for the primary! A show of force that should do more for campaign finance reform than any piece of legislation ever could.
