It's shameful to hear about the cost of our political campaign. The numbers are absolutely staggering - millions of dollars in private donations to Obama, and public funds for McCain are nothing short of insane.
I know its somewhat necessary, and campaigning does cost money, but my mind swims with the possibilities of places where these funds could be so beneficial.
It seems like Obama may very well be our next President - hopefully all of the private sector people who have donated so much money to ensuring that will happen will continue to donate to important causes and programs to get our country back on track. And hopefully Obama will put that money where his mouth is, and we will see the fruition of the promises he has made during the campaign.
