How much money and number of votes Former President Clinton and Incumbent President Obama get out of joint fund raising campaign: An commentary
Anchor for Allvoices
It is very interesting to know and observe the support former Presidentgives to incumbent President in their joint and second fundraising campaign.
This consists of raffling tickets to the June 4th New York City event in a contest parallel early May Obama fund-raiser that brought a low-dollar supporter to a high-price held at the home of movie star George Clooney
Let it be recalled that the first Obama-Clinton fund-raiser took place in late April at the Virginia home of former Democratic National Committee Chairman Terry McAuliffe.
Such fund-raising collected $43.6 million for the Obama campaign that compensated the joint efforts of the two presidents in early April.
At the same period, GOP candidateand his allies raised $40.1 million.
Having been delegated to serve as the prime surrogate to endorse the economic policies of Obama, trumpeting to rescue the declining auto industry of the U.S and to emphasize the killing of Al-Qaeda Chieftain Osama Bin Laden as herculean feat and achievement of Obama.
Enjoying this distinct privilege, Clinton is only controlled by himself whenever he speaks. He is unmindful whether or not, attracting the votes for Obama or driving them away. Certainly, Obama has to deal and bear the price or cost of Clinton’s favors.
Concerning today’s fund raising, the two presidents, will initially dine at a private home then, a gala at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. They will be seen together at the “Broadway to Barack” fundraiser home.
The import and implication of, “Well, you guys get two presidents for one out of this event, which is a pretty good deal” will yet to be shelled out according to the success and amount to be raised. Much more that fund raising event will be able to convert onlookers and sympathizers into pro Obama votes.
Yes, the Obama-Clinton fundraising tandem and its activities are events of today’s news. It is very interesting to know such working partnerships between the two presidents. It could not be ignored that there are entailed disadvantages below or over the good intents and purposes.
However, the second joint fundraising campaign indicates a better Obama-Clinton relationship regardless of pigments or droplets of sour, bitter and pungent taste along the way.
