Your phone rings and Hillary Clinton's on the other end. She wants money. But not just for her. She's agreed to help Tom Vilsack pay off the big bucks he owes after his failed attempt to become President (I hear it's about $430,000 and he's determined to pay staffers for all their dedication). Clinton's peeps say this is NOT (emphasis added to reflect what I heard on the phone from the campaign) a payback. She's not paying off his debt in exchange for his endorsement.
Other democratic campaigns are also (gladly) pointing to South Carolina right now. Darrell Jackson, a state senator there, and apparently a pretty influential lawmaker...at least, that's what I read, also endorsed Clinton. He's now getting $10,000 a month to consult the campaign. The Clinton campaign also denies any type of deal for his endorsement.
