sumdumass writes: Obama decided to forgo the federal matching money that would limit campaign contributions and campaign spending for an exchange of around 85 million dollars in public money after already promising a commitment to it in the primaries. He claims it is because of unregulated republican sources and special interest groups like the swift boat campaign against John Kerry. I hope he isn't going to start claiming service in Vietnam or something to attract their attention. Is this the change we are looking at? Breaking a campaign promise, one that was once at the heart of campaign finance reform and once a big democrat charge?
