Clinton to take on McCain

Hillary Clinton says she is the best placed candidate for the Democrats to beat Republican John McCain when it comes to the US presidential elections.

She says her win over Barack Obama in the Pennsylvania primary showed she could gather a broad base of support. She cannot match him in popular votes, but the party’s super-delegates could give her the nomination if they think she is more likely to beat Mr. McCain.

Mrs. Clinton says an appeal launched after Tuesday’s win raised $3m (£1.5m). The internet fundraising is a much-needed boost to her debt-laden campaign – in Pennsylvania; Mr. Obama outspent her three-to-one. She has said securing more donations was the only way she could continue to compete with a rival who was outspending her “massively”.

Why it all ends on how much money they got? Is something that should make us worry about it?
