I guess it's only a good thing when the Democrates raise money.

Let me get this straight, According to AlGore it's OK to take Federal campaign funds but, if you raise all your own campaign funds and don't take the Federal funds, you're some kind of "cheat".

Of course it's much more acceptable to the "Manchurian Candidate" if you accept illegal funds from China or some other foreign country.

Gore is worried because he knows that political offices go to the highest bidder.

"The next item up is the Presidency of the United States. Who'll open the bidding? I've got a bid of 25 cents, 25, 25, 25 anybody make it 50? Still at 25, 25. Going once, going twice, SOLD! to the two bit politician!

The best part is the media gets to rake in millions of dollars selling air time to candidates from all sides while pushing it's Leftist agenda. "The best of both Worlds" to them.
