Tough to see Samantha Power resign from the Obama campaign (or maybe it’s good to see her go?). I happen to agree with her characterization of Hillary, so I guess it’s clear I’m not cut out for high flying campaign adviser status, either.

The Clinton campaign has already spun it into a money making venture:

Dear ,

Just one day after Senator Obama promised to begin attacking Hillary, a senior Obama advisor has called her a “monster.”

That’s right — a “monster.”

At the same time, Senator Obama’s aides have begun rehashing the old negative attacks of the 90’s against Hillary.

This is not the politics of hope — it’s the usual attack style politics that we have seen time and time again.

And it must stop.

Only you can make that happen. A small contribution now — even as little as $5 — will show the Obama campaign that there is a price to this kind of attack politics.

Make a contribution to stop the Obama attacks.

What caught my eye was the “even as little as $5” point. They should’ve just said, “No donation is too small.” It reminded me of Obama’s favorite donation:

I think of that elderly woman who sent me a contribution the other day, a money order for three dollars and one cent, along with a verse of scripture tucked inside the envelope. So don’t tell me change isn’t possible. That woman knows that change is possible.

There you have it: Hillary would’ve refused that little old lady’s donation because it was too small and because she doesn’t want change.  Of any kind.

Maybe I could be a high flying campaign strategist
