Clinton 'on track' to raise $10 million in 24 hours: "Hillary Clinton's campaign says it is on track to raise $10 million online in the 24 hours since the Pennsylvania primary results were announced. … The campaign also said over 60,000 donors—50,000 of them new—have given money to Clinton from Tuesday night through noon Wednesday."

That's half of what she raised in all of March.

As ever, I'm excited about the idea that new people are being brought into and getting passionate about the democratic process. On the other hand, the amounts of money being raised and spent in this campaign—as in all others during my lifetime, with no special ire reserved for either Clinton or Obama—are positively obscene.
