Clinton Told True Tale of Woe, Says Kin  —  The aunt of a young pregnant woman who died after a hospital told her she needed to pay $100 up front for care said in an interview on Monday that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has been telling the story accurately on the campaign trail …

Digby / Hullabaloo:
Storylines  —  Andrea Mitchell said today that Clinton has a “growing credibility gap” because she repeated a story on the stump about a woman who was denied health care and died.  (I believe this is based on a bizarre and very badly written article which appeared over the week-end in the New York Times.)

2 Suburban Philadelphia Counties Flip to Democratic Party  —  History is being made in the suburbs of Philadelphia.  —  The four suburban counties have long been Republican strongholds, with more Republican voters than Democratic ones.  The last time there were more Democrats than Republicans seems lost in the mist of time.

What Are They Waiting For?  —  D-day says that I'm one of the biggest pollyannas in the blogosphere about the November election.  My sunny upbeat belief that the Democrats are pretty much a shoe-in and that all this unpleasantness will be long forgotten by then is what gets me through these days of obnoxious online life.

McCain Raises $15M In March  —  Sen. John McCain's fundraising is picking up, relatively speaking.  —  In March, officials said he raised about $15M, his best month since early 2007 and well above his $2M-per-month pace in late 2007.  The final number is still being tallied.

The non-political elite view of McCain  —  A GOP fundraiser who hasn't, to put it mildly, been the biggest McCain booster in the world makes a smart point to me in explaining his success so far in raising coin for the GOP nominee from money types outside the Washington crowd.

The Worst President Ever?  —  An unscientific survey of 109 professional historians, conducted by the doubtless-unbiased author of Grand Theft Jesus: The Hijacking of Religion In America, reports that sixty-one percent of its sample considers George W. Bush's Presidency the “worst ever.”

Murtha's CTC Corp  —  Lots of news making the rounds right now about John Murtha's earmarks.  One familiar recipient is CTC (Concurrent Technologies Corporation).  “Corporation” is a bit of a misnomer since CTC is a 501(c)(3) Public Charity.  —  Knowing something about non-profits I decided to do a little sleuthing.
