Obama Raises Cash, Clinton Courts Gays

WASHINGTON - Barack Obama continues to pile up impressive fundraising numbers. He brought in more than twice as much as Hillary Clinton in March.

Meanwhile, Clinton is touting her staunch support for gay rights.

The Obama Money Tree

Obama is turning into a human ATM machine. If you want cash, his campaign has got it.

"I got a money order for $3 from a woman - which I appreciated," Obama said.

Obama's raised a total of $40 million compared to $20 million for Clinton.

"In a normal campaign if a candidate raised 20 million dollars in one month they'd be popping champagne corks, Hillary Clinton is not going up against a normal candidate. Obama has revolutionized campaign fundraising," Time Magazine's political analyst Mark Halperin said.

Clinton has ground to make up not only with fundraising but to convince superdelegates that she's the more electable candidate.

Clinton Reaches Out to Gays

In an effort to portray herself strong on gay rights, she was the only candidate to give an interview to the Philadelphia gay news

In it, she outlined her opposition to a bill that would ban gay marriage in Pennsylvania.

She would eliminate the current, "don't ask, don't tell" policy in the military so gays could serve openly. She also would support federal domestic partner legislation which would expand to include all same sex couples.

On Jay Leno last night, Clinton joked about the criticism leveled at her that she made up a story about facing sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia as first lady. It turned out that never happened.

She told Leno, "It is so great to be here, I was so worried I wasn't going to make it. I was pinned down by sniper fire."
