Obama Fundraiser Defects to Clinton
With Obama, Edwards, and everyone else on the Dems wannabe list failing to go after Clinton where she is most vulnerable, you really got to wonder if the other candidates are serious in their Presidential Bid.
Looks as though one of Obama’s fundraisers is bailing out on his sinking campaign and jumping over to Camp Hill… Hey maybe he likes Chinese Food…

A longtime Democratic fundraiser has abandoned Barack Obama’s campaign to help rival Hillary Rodham Clinton win the party’s presidential nomination.
Bob Farmer, who was a top fundraiser for several past Democratic presidential candidates, had served on Obama’s national finance committee.
Farmer did not respond to a request for comment after a message was left at his home in Bal Harbour, Fla. But Kirk Wagar, Obama’s Florida finance chair, said Farmer let him know he was switching sides without saying why.
“I thanked him,” Wagar said.
In response to the departure, Obama spokesman Bill Burton said, “He was not a bundler. He didn’t raise any money for us, but we wish him well.” Bundlers had committed to raise at least $50,000 for the campaign.
Personally I don’t really care who gets the Dem nomination, but those who claim to be competing for it should at least make it look good. The way it looks now the Dem Primaries are little more than a farce…
