Thanks for sharing this information. :) I was happy to see many of the names listed under Obama. (By the way, Russell Simmons pleasantly surprised me.)

How did Will, Jada, and Chris Rock get over the $4600 mark?

Thanks Bai!

Tracee Edmonds isn't cheap, she's smart. Its better to give a little at a time than to give it all at once because that helps your candidate go further. If everyone donated all they had right away, his money would burn out quicker. Remember...it's slow and steady that wins the race.

OP, a $500 donation makes one cheap? :unsure: How much have you donated?

i didnt see where anyone stated that tracee edmonds donating $500 was cheap. gigglezk was saying that $500 ISNT cheap and that she was doing it the smart way...donating a little at a time instead of the full amount up front. you know..a little goes a long way. ^_^

I'm not the OP but, i've donated $500 so far and I volunteer at the Obama headquarters in my area.

Ask Chilli and T-boz if Ms. Edmonds is cheap.

I think they meant that $500 is cheap considering how much Tracy Edmonds has. $500 for an average working-class or middle-class person is good, for a millionaire it's small.

^^^That could be so, but I think the OP called her cheap based on looking at what the other celebrities have already donated.

I&#39;ve donated 250.00 dollars to his campaign. But I&#39;m no Tracey Edmonds with <strike>alimony payments </strike> divorce settlement from Baby Face-who also made a nice contribution ;)

I think folks got what I was saying ^_^

I&#39;m sure Obama and his campaign appreciates any contribution. After all he did address the elderly woman who sent him a money order for $3.01
