Some bits of info on the '08:

--> Clinton Hauls in $35 Mill; Obama Camp Says They'll Do Better [about $50]
"I was sure excited by the generosity of thousands of new donors," Clinton
told reporters in Hanging Rock, Ohio. "It was really heartwarming because a
lot of them sent e-mails talking about why they were contributing and it was
often five, ten, fifteen dollars and they would write about how they wanted
to do for their children."
Of the 35 million, campaign officials said 30 million came from online donations.
The money included donations from more than 200,000 new donors.

-->In his back-and-forth with Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., over Iraq, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Thursday morning sought to portray the Democratic front-runner as representing the Iraq politics of the past by focusing on the decision to invade in 2003 rather than what to do now.
"That's talking about what happened before. What we should be talking about is
what we're going to do now. And what we're going to do now is continue this
strategy which is succeeding in Iraq and we are carrying out the goals of the
surge, the Iraqi military are taking over more and more of the

McCain Wednesday criticized Obama for stating that as president, after withdrawing combat troops from Iraq, he might send troops back in "if al Qaeda is forming a base" there. Seeking to portray Obama as naïve and ill-informed on national security, McCain said, "I have some news — al Qaeda is in Iraq. It's called: 'Al Qaeda in Iraq.'"

--> Angry tribal elders in Kenya are calling on Hillary Rodham Clinton to "clear her name" over any involvement in publication of photos of Barack Obama wearing a turban and African garb on a trip to his ancestral homeland.
The photos appeared nationwide after they were published earlier this week on the Drudge Report Web site with a report that they had been circulated by Clinton staffers.
The pictures show Obama wearing traditional Somalian garb on a 2006 visit to the Wajir region of Kenya, where his late father was born.

-->Troubles face Obama if he gets the nomination....The Tennessee Republican Party, identifying him with his middle name as Barack Hussein Obama, suggested that his foreign policy would be shaped by people who are anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.

The Republican National Committee issued a statement on Wednesday invoking a questionnaire Mr. Obama filled out when running for Senate in 2004 to show that he once opposed cracking down on businesses that hire illegal immigrants.

Without using Mr. Obama’s name, President Bush, at a White House news conference on Thursday, assailed his willingness to meet Cuba’s new leader, Raúl Castro, without preconditions, saying that to do so would grant “great status to those who have suppressed human rights and human dignity.”

-->The Texas Democratic Party warned Thursday that election night caucuses scheduled for Tuesday could be delayed or disrupted after aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton threatened to sue over the party's complicated delegate selection process.
Democratic sources said both campaigns have made it clear that they might consider legal options over the complicated delegate selection process, which includes both a popular vote and evening caucuses. But the sources made it clear that the Clinton campaign in particular had warned of an impending lawsuit.
