New York Times, December 5th:"Obama Hauls In Record $750 Million for Campaign, With Plenty Left to Spend"

...second-guessing is less likely this time because Mr. Obama won. He has several options for his remaining cash, Mr. Gross said, like transferring it to the Democratic National Committee or another party committee, or rolling it over to his 2012 re-election campaign.

What is not an option for Mr. Obama is to help Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton with paying off the debt from her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.

But the day before, in Forbes:"Obama's donor list asked to help pay Clinton debt"


Homer: This is your fault with your non threatening Bobby Sherman-style good looks. No girl could resist your charms.
Barach: This was her choice, Mr. Simpson...
Homer: I'm sorry, I wasn't listening. I was lost in your eyes.

What it sounds like is Obama can’t use his leftovers from his campaign funds to help Hillary but if his donors want to help Hillary out with more of their own money that is kosher. Gosh, I really feel Hillary and Bill’s pain.

I understand the difference but the Times avoids telling their readers about plan B altogether. Yes we can (pay off Mark Penn).
