The Clintons are rich, right?

I really don't think Joe Biden should be emailing my broke ass to pay a millionaire's debts:

We want to be ready to go, and that's why I'm asking you to help us honor an outstanding commitment we made during the election.

Our campaign pledged to help Senator Hillary Clinton -- one of the vital members of our team and our future Secretary of State -- retire her campaign debt. That's the money her campaign owes to the vendors across the country that make our political process possible.

Barack and I had the deepest respect for Hillary as an opponent on the campaign trail. Her undeniable intellect, talent, and passion strengthened Barack as a candidate and tested our movement for change.

We welcome Hillary as a partner in our administration, and I hope you will show your support by helping Barack fulfill our campaign promise.

I saw your generosity and commitment to this team throughout the election, and I know we can do it.

In the general election, Hillary was one of our strongest advocates. She traveled the country and did more than 70 events, raising money and bringing new supporters into our campaign.

As Secretary of State, she will be indispensable in furthering Barack's agenda for change.

Let's welcome Hillary to the team and thank her for her efforts in support of our campaign by helping to retire her debt to the hard-working individuals and small businesses that were a part of the election:

Your support and generosity got us this far, and I know I can count on it now.

Thank you,

Joe


Forget all the reasons I supported the Obama candidacy instead of Hillary Clinton's, forget the massive amounts of cash she spent prolonging her campaign when the writing was on the wall, and forget that the debt is owed to Mark Penn.

Today, it was announced that the last time so many jobs had been lost in a month was 1974.

And I'm kinda trying to look for a job right now.

Hillary, step up and retire you're own damn debt.

Barack Obama donors need to be funding soup kitchens right now instead.
