The Los Angeles Times reports that the Clinton campaign is $20.88 million in debt, including over $9 million in unpaid bills and over $11 million she's loaned herself. There has been considerable speculation that one of the things Clinton will ask Sen. Obama for, as a condition for her support, is paying off her campaign debt. Obama's response should be, help get me elected and we'll help retire your debt after the election. Then again, she could pay off the debt from Bill Clinton's future speaking fees (possible topics: "Traveling The Back Roads Of West Virginia", or "I Want Another Chance - - Chelsea for President In 2020?").
