Hillary Clinton fundraising chief and noted Fox News admirer Terry McAuliffe took to MSNBC's airwaves (cable-waves?) a few hours ago to boast that that Hillary has raised over $10 million online from over 50,000 new donors since her victory last night. Markos Moulitsas channels my own thoughts on this development: "Impressive if true."

Assuming it's true, this is excellent news for Republicans who have been hoping for a competitive primary race on the Democratic side that will run right through the convention. Yet it's even better news for students of Terry McAuliffe's insufferability which is sure to be driven to astonishing new heights by this latest coup. The flights of ego that this cash haul will surely generate will leave even veteran McAuliffe observers agape.
