She feels our pain

Hillary practices strategic bill-paying:
A pair of Ohio companies owed more than $25,000 by Clinton for staging events for her campaign are warning others in the tight-knit event production community — and anyone else who will listen — to get their cash upfront when doing business with her. Her campaign, say representatives of the two companies, has stopped returning phone calls and e-mails seeking payment of outstanding invoices. One even got no response from a certified letter.
Hey, lots of cash-strapped Americans can relate to Hillary on this. If the phone bill's a month past due and the electric bill's two months past due, you write a check to the electric company and hope the phone doesn't get shut off before you get paid again.

Michelle Malkin is more judgmental:
[T]he woman who promises billions and billions of your money to help other people pay their bills, won’t pay her own . . .
Jammie Wearing Fool is also unsympathetic:
She sure can be a skinflint when it comes to her own money, but will lavishly spend yours. What a hypocrite.
C'mon, guys -- you need to be tolerant and understanding, like Richard Mellon Scaife:
Her meeting and her remarks during it changed my mind about her.
Walking into our conference room, not knowing what to expect (or even, perhaps, expecting the worst), took courage and confidence. Not many politicians have political or personal courage today, so it was refreshing to see her exhibit both.

Now what Scaife needs to do is write checks to a few straw donors, so Hillary can pay her bills with illegal contributions. Courage!

UPDATE: Instapundit calls it "cash-flow management." I'll remind my wife to use that phrase next time the credit-card company calls.

UPDATE II: Allahpundit's feeling "schadenfreude" over Hillary's cash crunch. It hurts when people talk that way about my close personal friend. Allah's probably just jealous, like Don Surber.
