Looking for Money in a Rival's Backyard

Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY) crossed the Potomac for a intimate little fundraiser in Gov Mark Warner's (D-VA) hometown of Alexandria, Virginia. Both are seen as likely contenders for the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination.

About 200 Virginians turned out to hand out checks to the former First Lady. The money was for Sen Clinton's re-election bid in New York next year. But it does put some Virginia Democrats -- including the event's organizers -- in an awkward position since they've pledged support to their native son in 2008. (WashPost)
