New York Senate Race… (Money Well Spent?)

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is asking her backers to step up their donations, saying opponents of her 2006 re-election effort "will raise and spend hundreds of millions of dollars against me." […] "Your gift is essential to show my opponents that I have the support I need to win," she wrote.

The GOP is claiming a “slight” over estimate by Mrs. Clinton. However, even if it is only half of her estimate, it is a sick state of affairs that the potential for $100 million to be thrown down for a state election when there are so many other needs in the world.

Why don’t both sides agree to take half of their contributions and donate them to the Gulf? Or how about the DNC agrees to take $40 million of what is raised for Hillary, and give it to the New York Homeless shelters, while the RNC takes $40 million raised for her opponent and gives it to the New York Veterans Hospital, or maybe Habitat for Humanity? I think the money would be much more useful under those motives rather than some deceptive ad campaign.
