The Sad Spectacle of Obama's Super PAC (reblog)

Robert Reich: The Sad Spectacle of Obama's Super PAC

This post from Robert Reich is well worth a read. Campaign financing is going to be crazy this election, and no candidate has the high ground when it comes to the Super PAC issue, no matter how much President Obama may have tried to claim it early on.
It has been said there is no high ground in American politics since any politician who claims it is likely to be gunned down by those firing from the trenches. That’s how the Obama team justifies its decision to endorse a super PAC that can raise and spend unlimited sums for his campaign.
