Obama: The $300 Million Man

Marc Ambinder notes that Barack Obama has raised $337 million to date -- already the biggest haul of campaign cash in history, and almost certain to top half a billion dollars by Election Day.

Whatever criticism one makes of the Obama campaign, their fundraising prowess is remarkable. And it's ironic that they've raised this astronomical sum in order to defeat John McCain, the man who pushed through the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act to "get the big money out of politics." If McCain loses, he will have been hoisted by his own petard.
