Obama's Finance Ploy
Obama's Finance Ploy
There are a couple issues McCain is facing right now regarding election finances. These could dramatically effect his ability to campaign.

In order for the FEC to make a ruling they need a quorum but there are are not enough members. Obama is blocking the confirmation of an appointee. If Obama continues this, McCain will have his hands tied financially and Obama will obtain a huge advantage. picked by 2manyusernames 2 years ago

Ten things that won't change (no matter who gets elected)
The more things change, the more they stay the same is the old saying. How true that is. Among the things that won't change is America's relationship with China. Next time a candidate promises to get tough with Beijing, you may want to remind them of the trillion or so dollars that we owe them. picked by 2manyusernames 2 years ago

However, declassified documents obtained by the National Security Archive and testimony that is part of these lawsuits suggest the National Security Agency program was put into place shortly after Mr. Bush was inaugurated, long before 9/11. picked by dollyllama 2 years ago
