Think back to when the electioneering actully started maybe 2 years ago and then think………Obama, Clinton, McCain, Edwards and all and sundry. Between them they have raised millions of dollars in this fight to get to the White House, just imagine all the good that could have been done with that money, money that has been given by rich and famous people who hope for special favours somewhere down the track. TV companies are the main beneficiaries along with the newspapers etc. They should be ashamed of themselves for spending all that dough on themselves and their hangers on. Money they could have been spent on schools, hospitals and the needy. They have the cheek to say they want to eliminate poverty, well that money would have gone along way to solve some of it coming up to christmas for a lot of needy people. Just cements my view, polititians are the scum of this earth.
