The Clinton-donor letter, criticizing House Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiAre Democrats turning Trump-like? Pelosi hits Trump, Netanyahu for 'weakness' amid tensions over Omar and Tlaib In Hong Kong, the need for peaceful persistence MORE (D-Calif.), was typical "Sopranos"-style Clinton campaigning. And it may have worked. Unfortunately for the Clintons, though, it isn't looking that way.

The letter, which takes issue with Pelosi's statement about how superdelegates should choose the will of the people when voting for Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) or Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) by selecting the winner of pledged delegates, also implies that the donors will cut off funds to the party. MoveOn is outraged with what they called "billionaires bullying the Democratic Party," and is asking its members to sign a statement of support for Pelosi. "When we all pool our resources, together we're stronger than the fat cats. So let's tell Nancy Pelosi that if she keeps standing up for regular Americans, thousands of us will have her back," the group's letter states.

But wait, it gets even better for Pelosi, and clearly, for Obama.

Not only is MoveOn fired up, a fat cat opened her wallet today on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee to support Pelosi. NBC is reporting that Leslie Walker Burlock of San Francisco pledged $28,000 to the DCCC yesterday.

An Obama supporter, Burlock said in her letter to Pelosi, "I hope and trust that when the superdelegates cast their votes at the convention they will represent the will of the voters as you have called for them to do."

Your move, Team Clinton.
