geeze, isn't that close to what Bush charged when he came to Macon for the Mac Collins fund raiser? Has Mac reimbursed the U.S. Taxpayers for Bush's trip yet?

Dang, what are the national democratic candidates turning into? It's funny how people end up becoming what they hate.

i hate rutabagas...

Wow, I'm with Victor. One nice thing about backing a "second tier" candidate is that it only cost me a lovely road trip and $48 at the Knights Inn of Camden to hang out with my boy Joe. Plus I got to see, you know, Historic Camden, and drink $2 Yuengling.

It would be nice if candidates did not have to raise money, but, seriously, how would you suggest they raise the 150 million or so they will need for the primary if they forego high dollar events? Most of these guys (and gal) are also doing public events and low or lower dollar events.

I wish they did not have to raise the cash, but they are running national campaigns and communicating with voters is expensive. I am all for doing what we can to get the money out of the middle of politics, but the reality is that until and unless we have publicly funded elections (something Edwards advocates, in order to have a snowballs chance in hell of winning- they have to raise the cash. I don't like it; you don't like it, but tell me, what is the alternative?

It's nice to know that the "big-time" political players are throwing such parties to support Barack. I *hope* they have been listening to what he's saying and are supporting him for the right reasons, otherwise they will be disappointed when they find out their money didn't but the kind of access that can be bought from other candidates.

I was, at first, disappointed that there would be this kind of fundraiser here, but realized that this was initiated by a local person and Barack would be crazy to turn them down. Remember, he want to include everyone in the process, which includes those with $2300 to donate. He'll include the rest of us too!

BTW, it doesn't take a $2300 donation to work with www.GeorgiaForObama.org !!!

Amy's right...it's a nasty political truth that sometimes it is about the money. Victor, I don't believe Mac has repaid a nickel. He went to the dentist the day after the election and has not been heard from since. Did he ever concede?
