Hillary Clinton, who has steadily chipped away at the more than $25 million in debt her campaign amassed during her run for president, owes only $100,000, according to Federal Election Commission disclosures for the second quarter of 2012.

Running for president is expensive, and although the subject of campaign debt has usually been synonymous with Newt Gingrich in the past several months, Clinton is among the many former presidential candidates who've departed the trail in debt.

She suspended her campaign in June 2008 owing the $25 million but had paid off enough by the end of that year to owe $5.9 million.

I wish I could afford to pay off $25MM in debt in 3.5 years.

Go through Romney's couch, I'm sure there's more than enough in there!

(it's a joke, get over it)

why are politicians allowed to overspend on their campaigns in the first place?

It's personal indebtedness. If they can get the loan, more power to them.
