More Than Just Pretty Words?

It looks like Obama's supporters are doing more than buying into his "Change begins with you." meme. It would appear that they are implementing it. Over at Donors Choose, a site that lets teachers post their projects and donors choose which ones they want to fund, Obama supporters have donated more funds than anyone else and funded five times more projects than Clinton's supporters.

Give in honor of Hillary Clinton

How much have John McCain's supporters donated? Less than ten bucks.

I'm curious as to what the total charitable contributions of Obama's supporters are. Unfortunately there know way of calculating that.
