Presidential slush funds

In just the first 3 months of this year, the six main US presidential candidates, (Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, Rudy Giuliani, John Edwards and John McCain), have fundraised between them over $115 million, more than the quarterly GDPs of some African and Pacific countries.
This, remember, is just the early stages of the fight for the Democratic and Republican party nominations. The actual presidential elections are not until November 2008!
Enough said! I rest my case.
