Due to Democratic senator Hillary Clinton’s selfishness in continuing to stay in a race she has lost, Republican rival, senator John McCain, now has more money at his disposal for the general election. This gives the Republican party an advantage.

Not only is Hillary unnecessarily wearing out Obama with this race, she is wasting his money in not conceding. Time and energy that could be spent on the real race are being usurped by her inability to let go.

He’s had to spend tens of millions of dollars in fighting Hillary’s foolishness, that could have gone to the general election.

McCain camp claims it has money lead over Obama

5/27/08 11:45 AM – Carly Fiorina, an adviser to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, said Tuesday that the Arizona Republican has more funds at his disposal than does Democratic front-runner Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.).

“At the end of the April, John McCain had cash on hand of over $60 million, and Sen. Obama had cash on hand of over $50 million,” Fiorina said on CNN.

While McCain is raising far less money than Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), he is also not forced to spend as much money, because he has clinched the GOP nomination. Obama has spent over $100 million through the first four months of the year, according to Federal Election Commission reports.
