According to the Clinton campaign, 100,000 of Hillary Clinton's enthusiastic donors have contributed more than $10M since Feb 5.

Now these numbers are looked at with suspicion by Obama allies. They can't possibly see how Clinton could generate some of the same enthusiasm that Obama does -- they can't stand comparisons of his donors to hers.

But unless the Clinton campaign is just flat out lying, which I will stipulate is most likely not the case, something is going on here that we can't fully appreciate or understand just it.
