Kerry Fundraisers Calling for 2006 Campaign Dollars
For the record I declined, as I had donated only days before via Kerry's PAC web site,
http://www.keepingamericaspromise.com/, however I was glad someone was tackling that thankless task, and doing it sooner rather than later.
While Hillary gets the most attention when it come to fundraising dollar figures it remains to be seen whether her pile of cash will be used predominantly for her own re-election, or to help other democrats win in 2006, OR if her main goal is simply to get a jump start on 2008. Sure she has to be prepared to fight the inevitable Republican attacks, but all indications are that her re-election will be a cake walk.
Lets hope she follows Kerry's example and spreads the wealth. Same goes for all the other democratic contenders positioning for 2008. Put up or shut up in 2006. Your political ambitions are secondary to getting progressives elected in 2006, period.
