But they won't because they know that it'd be too risky for their candidate's presidential hopes. Hillary supporters remain an angry lot and regardless of the fact that their candidate wouldn't be in so much debt if she was able to put her huge ego aside and step out the race when all was said and done back when Barack won North Carolina back in May, the Geraldine Ferraro wing of the Billary camp would use any excuse to continue claiming "dis-unity" and vote for John McCain:
Presidential candidate Barack Obama (D., Ill.) reportedly has agreed to ask his supporters to help retire the debt of former rival Hillary Clinton (D., N.Y.).
According to reports from the Associated Press, Obama has asked his largest campaign bundlers to do all they can to help Clinton, who was forced into debt to compete with the donation-rich Illinois senator. Obama has not yet asked for help from small donors, many of whom have donated online.
Obama has pledged to help with at least $10 million of Clinton's debt.
According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Clinton's debt amounts to $22,523,860. Much of that debt was funded from a personal fortune she and husband Bill Clinton amassed from books and speaking arrangements after President Clinton left the White House. Hillary Clinton announced plans to pay off vendors prior to personal loans.
