Obama just $1,000,000 behind hillary's $26,000,000

Today we learn that Obama, the new kid on the democratic block, has raised just $1million short of Hillary Clinton's campaign funds and all the stories in the paper's are focusing on this race for dollars.

There is no analysis of policy, character or plans just money. Democracy is cheapened by this kind of thing.

The only bright thing was that some 90 per cent of Mr Obama's donations were of $100 or less and internet contributions accounted for $6.9 million of the total. That means it was real people who donated to his campaign as opposed to corporations. Also Obama has refused donations from lobbists and political action committees (pressure groups).
