Here is my advice for this and every other boy who feels bullied for being excluded on the playground: Grow a set, toughen up, work on your game or learn to play clarinet and be ready for band camp in high school.
It was McCain who never tried to meet Obama on campaign finance. As the story has unfolded, the press consistently fails to mention that McCain, not Obama, violated the campaign finance laws.
Obama's brand involves a new kind of politics, something that doesn't involve political expediency -- which is why it was a blunder to flip flop on public campaign finance for the general election.
Obama is raising more money via the Internet in small donations than any candidate in history. Hooray! But it is just as true that he is raising more money from fat cat donations than any candidate in history.
With this bold move, Obama is going straight past McCain to the source of real GOP election funding, the RNC, which will be spending massively to defeat the Democratic nominee in the fall.
If Obama limits himself to not accepting more than $100 from any individual for the general election he could credibly claim a parallel public financing system.
Obama's second secret weapon will be a "Million Man March," organized to include men and women. May sound silly, but thats it.
