The campaign finance decision

Yesterday, the Supreme Court held that "corporations and unions can unleash millions of dollars on campaign ads to help defeat or elect candidates, under a sweeping . . . decision . . . that rolls back decades-old limits on political spending."

Democrats would be in a better position to fight this ruling if Obama had not reneged on his pledge and "refused taxpayer money during the 2008 general election campaign so he could raise four times more than the $85 million he would have received in public funds".

By the way - - wasn't there supposed to be an investigation into illegal foreign campaign donations finding their way into the 2008 presidential campaign?
