Rush Is On To Retire Clinton Debt

The urgency is increasing for New York Senator Hillary Clinton to retire her debt before confirmation hearings begin early next year for her nomination to become Secretary of State. Clinton still owed about $7.5 million to vendors from her campaign at the beginning of November. A fund-raising letter from Vive President-elect Joe Biden to all of Obama campaign's fundraisers is reportedly being sent out and former President Clinton and Mrs. Clinton will headline a major fundraiser in New York later this month.

Leaving no stone unturned, Mrs. Clinton's Mother, Dorothy Rodham is appealing to Clinton's campaign contributors in an e-mail sent out today. The appeal offers a copy of a new children's book, "Hillary Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight," to donors who give $50 or more. For a contribution of $250 or more, donors will be given a personally signed copy. "I'm so proud of everything my daughter has accomplished and excited about what her future holds," Mrs. Rodham writes. "As you know, Hillary is still working hard to pay down the debt from her campaign, and I hope you'll take this opportunity to help her out. … I know you're just as proud as I am of everything my daughter has achieved, and I want to thank you for everything you've done to support her!"
