Obama Takes Lead In Money Raised

Sen. Barack Obama raised $31 million for his presidential primary campaign over the past three months, surging past Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's fundraising machine by nearly $10 million for the quarter to take the lead in contributions in the crowded Democratic field. Read More.

This is going to put the pressure on Hillary. Her front runner status is definitely in jeopardy. It looks like Edwards only raised 9 million, that will be the end of him.

The GOP still seems open. It will be interesting to see what happens when Thompson formally declares.

I still think its too early to make any conclusions about which party and/or which candidate is in the "lead". I am grateful though that they are spending so much of other people's money - it's good for the economy.

As much as I wish Congress would get something done....considering the current Congress - it's better that they are all on the campaign trail and not interfering too much with US.

Isn't that the truth.

Also agree that it is to early to tell who is going to be the nominee. This is the longest election cycle in history and I am going to be tired of it before we even get close to an election.
