Even with his newfound millions, Bill Clinton isn't keeping pace with the old money Bushes...
My quick search of the Federal Election Commission Reports on individual contributions has George H.W. Bush personally outspending Clinton by a 5 – 1 margin.
Here’s a quick review of which former president gave to what:
Clinton has given:
1000 bucks to
ROSS, MICHAEL AVERY Arkansas House
PRYOR, MARK LUNSFORD Arkansas Senate
HATHORN, MICHAEL CARL Arkansas House
While H.W. has ponied up:
1,000 bucks to
BUSH, GEORGE W General Election
CORNYN, JOHN Texas Senate
LAZIO, RICK A NY Senate
SUNUNU, JOHN E NH Senate
HUTCHISON, KAY BAILEY Texas Senate
JANKLOW, WILLIAM S.D. House
GIULIANI, RUDOLPH W ---
ALLEN, GEORGE Virginia Senate
COLLINS, SUSAN M Maine Senate
2,000 to: BUSH, GEORGE W (Primary)
5,000 to: REPUBLICAN PARTY OF FLORIDA

Meanwhile, if you were wondering whether the punditocracy put any money where their big mouths are:
AnnCoulter: A bigmouth with a lot of strong opinions, ain't given nothing to nobody…
Same with Bill O’Reilly…
Pathetic that these big talkers won’t open their own wallets.
At least Al Franken shows the courage of his convictions…he’s given the full two grand to Kerry.
