Buddy Can You Spare A Dime?
...seven million dollars worth of dimes that is.
Today, like million of other supporters, I received an email from Vice President-elect Biden's wife Jill asking me to help retire future Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton's campaign debt of over $7 million.
Clearly that is a massive debt, but Bill and Hillary are worth over $40 million and between the two of them a few dozen paid speeches should take them from the red and put them in the pink. To be asking money from supporters who are worth far less and during an economic crisis is... well maybe a bit too much to swallow. Jill's letter went like this.
We're just 11 days away from the start of an important journey that will move our country in a new direction.
But as we all prepare for that journey, we can't forget our commitment to help Hillary Clinton retire her campaign debt.
I got to know Hillary on the campaign trail, and I saw firsthand what a vital role she played in Barack's election. And as our soon-to-be Secretary of State, Senator Clinton is working hard now to help Barack implement policies that will help us meet the global challenges we face.
Will you help us honor our promise and support our friend Hillary Clinton by making a donation of $100 or more today?
During the general election, Hillary was a tireless advocate for Barack, traveling across the country and uniting people in our movement for change.
As a wife and a mother, I know the kind of sacrifice she made as a candidate, an advocate for Barack and Joe, and now as a member of the cabinet. She made those sacrifices because she believed in the change that we all worked so hard for.
Now, we need to help Hillary focus on the challenges that she will face as Secretary of State. You can show your support and make sure the hard-working individuals and small businesses who were a part of Hillary's campaign effort are paid for their hard work.
