Obama Persuades Move On to Scrap Its 527

As I was saying below - Obama intends to run this campaign without the "benefit" of 527 money freely spending on his behalf. To back this up, he has now agreed with the Obama-endorsing grassroots group Move On that they will eliminate their independent 527. This group raised $20 Million for John Kerry in 2004.

But the Obama campaign prefers to rely primarily on small dollar contributions from millions of donors rather than the larger amounts that can be given by big dollar men to independent groups.

I'm glad to be one of the millions of givers. If you aren't one already, you should be. Donate 51 bucks today for a whole new way of conducting our politics - in all 50 states plus Americans Abroad.
