http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/21/AR2008022103141.html?hpid=topnews Here is the catch: In order to even consider that he might be released from the fifty-three million dollar limit that he agreed to, there needs to be a 4/6 majority in an FEC vote to allow it. But there are four vacant seats at the FEC so a vote isn't possible! In addition to that, he used public funds as collateral for a loan, so this may also bind him legally to using the public funds. And finally, some pundits are saying that he may not have the legal option to resign from the funds now in any event. So, since he has spent about forty-nine million, this all means that he only has ~ four million dollars left to spend betweem now and the convention. As one pundit observed, McCain may soon be doing press conferences from his front yard. So here are my questions: 1). With all of that experience, how did he allow himself to get into such a mess? 2). Is this what we are to expect from an old pro? Obama has tons of money.
