Considering that Republican money is less than pristine - and the blood and dirt on it mostly comes from the American people they leave slaughtered while collecting it .... I don't see why it should make a big difference!!

I don't see why it should make a big difference!! Yeah, the money for both sides probably came from the same place. So it may just be a matter of choosing the color of the puppet. Seeing what happened to Qadaffi all of the puppets work the same. Xum

Being that Obama said he would change the way fundraising operates, it should matter.

Considering that the President broke records in his 2008 campaign for raising money over the Internet from small individual donations and through grassroots efforts from individual Americans and supporters .... and is on pace to collect as much if not more in this upcoming election ... I would say that he HAS changed the way election fundraising happens. No other candidate had - or has since - received the kind of individual donor, non-corporate tainted money support that the President has.
