“Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash”
I can’t quite make up my mind about who to support for president, but i am certainly leaning toward Obama. I am on the email list for both Clinton and Obama, and i get a lot of fundraising appeals. The first of these emails can be blamed for my current political leaning. It basically comes down to this: Hillary’s letter said something like “give us money, even as little as 50 dollars will help” and Obama’s said something like “give us money, lots of people are giving 5 or 10 dollars.”
With that one peice of correspondence the Hillary campaign managed to make me feel that i was not of any interest to them or on their political radar. How am i supposed to believe that you are really going to be a progressive president for the middle class (much less the poor) when you basically roll your eyes at a donation it would take me two days to earn? I do realize that Clinton would accept donations that are very small, and i am certain Obama is getting (and pleased to be) much larger ones, but as a political campaign rhetoric, presentation and image are important – and, i think, telling.
