Women have been donating money to the Presidential campaigns in record amounts this cycle — more than three times as much as they gave in 2000 (if you only count women giving $200 or more, which means it's far more than that). In another new trend, women have given twice as much to Obama as McCain this time, whereas George Bush got twice as much money from women as Al Gore did in 2002 and Bush and John Kerry were tied in 2004. In addition to the $109.5 million women have given either Obama or McCain, they also gave $60 million to Hillary Clinton's campaign. So, c'mon now, 'fess up: who have you given to and how much have you given? Inquiring minds want to know. [Politico, Wall Street Journal]
