    Now, far be it for me to advance conspiracy theories..

    BUT….

    Putting on the tinfoil hat……………..

    The FIRST person I heard this from was James Carville on CNN.

    Which makes it suspect for me.

    I think this just a HRC ploy to raise Obama expectations, only to crush them at the end of the quarter…

    But, maybe I’ve been hanging out here too much.🙂

  2. rikyrah,

    It is still a ploy to raise expectations but he raised millions from over 40,000 in April. He could blow the roof off this motha with a hefty report. It is very, very possible. The donor community and normal grassroots folk have every reason to give to both Hillary and Obama. Their debate performaces have been solid and they should both have no trouble raising their goal-whatever it is.

    SB,

    I have to agree with rikyrah. I smell a rat! I think the HRC camp and her media operatives, namely Carville, have planted this story to raise unrealistic earnings expectations from Obama. When he comes in well below the $40MM, the headlines will scream “Obama’s bubble bursts.”

    See!!!

    I’m not the only one in with a tinfoil hat.

    And, I can see the headline too.

    Uh huh.

    This is getting interesting. Meek is backing off? SInce the piece is so short, here it is in its entirety:

    One day after he was poised to endorse Hillary Clinton for president, U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek told her campaign that it was ”not authorized” to use his name.

    Sources close to the campaigns of Clinton and rival Barack Obama told The Miami Herald on Thursday that Meek was throwing his support to Clinton. Meek had told some Obama supporters he was backing Clinton, and he was discussing how to make the announcement with her campaign, the sources said.

    Asked about Meek’s support Thursday, the Clinton campaign sent out a press release announcing that Florida U.S. Reps. Alcee Hastings and Debbie Wasserman Schultz were going to serve as national co-chairs, and that another ”major Florida endorsement” would be released in a conference call that afternoon.

    The call was canceled at the last minute, the Clinton campaign said, because of a ”scheduling conflict,” and no further announcement was made.

    On Friday, Meek sent a letter to Clinton’s campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, that reads: “I have not endorsed Senator Clinton for President. Therefore the Hillary for President Campaign is not authorized to use my name, image, or this incorrect news report in any of your campaign literature or promotional material.”

    Meek told The Miami Herald Friday that the newspaper did not need to correct its story.

  6. I think that we are going to be shocked when the official announcements about the $ amounts collected by the various candidates actually roll in. I know it’s strange and highly unusual, but I think that Obama is getting more support than we all expected him to get.

    I have a feeling that his momentum is building.

    Another thing I was wondering… I really question the motivation of whomever estimated that Obama is going to raise more money than Hil this quarter. I wonder if they did that to put some fire under all the white folks that don’t want to see Obama rise up in this thing. I wonder if they thought that hinting that Obama was going to have the most money would prompt those that want to keep Obama down to give to Hil. Just a thought…

    An interesting quote I noticed in the first article was this: Meek’s mother and respected predecessor in Congress, Carrie Meek, has not officially issued an endorsement, but she gave $1,000 to Obama’s campaign on March 31.

    Could there be disagreement within the Meek family about whom to support? Kendrick Meek’s endorsement is a big get because of the importance of Florida and his family name.

    Who knows what’s going on. Maybe Meek got cold feet. Or maybe there was a falling out between Meek and Team Hillary. Or maybe Obama or Edwards has a picture of Meek in bed with a goat. LOL.
