Sometimes I don’t get e-mail from crazies. Sometimes I get e-mail from people who make perfect sense.
Like this one I got today, from Hillary Clinton’s mom:
I’ve been so proud watching my daughter over the past few days as she begins a new step in a life so full of accomplishment. And I know she’ll continue to do great things for our country.
Now I have to ask you — for the very last time — to give her your help. This is our last chance to help Hillary pay down the debt from her history-making campaign.
I know how much it would mean to her to have your help this one last time. Please take this opportunity to show Hillary your support by making a contribution today.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for Hillary — I know you make a difference for her every day.
Hey, PUMAs! Are you paying attention?
Hillary Clinton’s campaign still has a debt of several million dollars. The PUMA blogs complain that President-elect Obama isn’t doing anything to help her retire the debt. Of course, there is a law that prohibits a president-elect from doing much of anything — he can’t transfer more than $2,500 from his campaign account, he can’t attend fund-raisers or sign letters.
So it’s up to Hillary Clinton to make her own campaign funds appeals. And sometime early next week, the law will close off her opportunities — a Secretary of State can’t do much to raise funds.
Fans of Hillary Clinton can contribute small stuff — a million contributions of $5.00 will help a lot, for example.
Are PUMAs really fans of Hillary Clinton as they claim? Now is the time for them to step up to the plate and knock one out of the park, if they are.
It’s time for all other fans of Hillary Clinton to step up, too.
Don’t you think she’ll make a great Secretary of State?
