McCain: Finance Reform, Obama: Give Me Money

Before he ran for President in 2000, John McCain was known for pushing campaign finance reform which culminated in the McCain-Feingold Act of 2002. McCain has not only pushed for reform, but has lived it. In 2008 he has used public financing and is willing to follow his word.

Barack Obama, on the other hand, had promised to go along with public financing. For all of the talk of corruption and special interests, Obama broke his promise and abandoned public financing. It appears that the lure of cold, hard cash and the Presidency were more than enough to flip-flop.

And now this: Obama is getting untracable donations. He could be receiving money from anyone, anyone, whether it be some of the dead folks that are voting for him or whether it be John McCain. Something feels fishy. I support capitalism (and even some socialism--beware!) but one thing that should not be bought, especially with dirty money, is the White House.
