As the end-of-the-quarter mad dash for cash approached its frenzied peak, Bill Clinton e-mailed supporters beseeching them to donate to Hillary Rodham Clinton`s presidential campaign before March 31.

It turns out that Mrs. Clinton would actually have suffered a crushing psychological defeat were it not for the $800,000 she collected at a March 31 fund-raiser hosted by hip-hop star Timbaland in Florida. That might explain her refusal so far to return the money. As it happens, Timbaland is one of the most foul-mouthed, culture-debasing, misogynistic rappers in the country.
