Obama Makes Stinging Hit on Hillary

In one of his harshest attacks yet against Hillary Clinton, Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has issued an urgent fundraising appeal to supporters saying his Democratic rival is in the pocket of lobbyists and special interests.

Clinton raised a reported $22 million in the third quarter of this year, and has $35 million available for the primary campaign, while Obama raised $20 million and has $32 million available.

“The results are clear. We continue to build the largest grassroots movement in history, but Washington lobbyists and special interests rallied to help Hillary Clinton out-raise us for the first time,” the Obama campaign said in a mass e-mailing sent out in the early hours Tuesday.

“We need to close that gap right now. I need you to make a donation,” Obama wrote.

Clinton “aggressively” seeks money from Washington lobbyists and special interest PACs, while Obama asserts he has “not accepted a dime” from those sources and has instead relied on a network of more than 350,000 “ordinary people” to keep pace with the Clinton fundraising machine – “more supporters than all the other Democratic candidates combined.”

The e-mail concludes: “In the face of the most entrenched political machine in Democratic politics, I believe a movement of ordinary Americans can change our country. And you can prove that right now.”
