The Clinton campaign managed to attract 100,000 new donors this quarter, about 7,000 more than Obama lured to his campaign.

If an Obama movement grew this quarter, than so did a Clinton movement.

I asked one of Clinton's largest fundraisers to account for her strength. "We're winning. People get it," was the response.

And Terry McAuliffe, the Clinton campaign's chairman, was his usual ebulliant self, via e-mail:

"It's simple. The more voters meet her, watch her during debates, and hear her ideas for changing this country, the more they're supporting her. Her fundraising strength to-date mirrors her successes in this race and she'll continue to work hard to earn even more support."
