$100,000,000 plus to become President of USA

According to the Washington Post...

"There is a growing sense that there is going to be a $100 million entry fee at the end of 2007 to be considered a serious candidate,"


What's more, many analysts believe that 2008 will be a clash of such titanic intensity that the nominees will reject public funding and the spending limits that govern it even for the fall campaign. If so, most bets are that each major-party candidate would need to raise in excess of $400 million by the Nov. 4, 2008, election. Candidates would want to raise as much of that money as early as possible, so as not to waste precious campaign time holding fundraisers.

That is some big bucks.......

That some serious coin

Indeedy!
The American public is already skeptical enough about voting without being even further disenfranchised by this crazy spending.
Makes the pledge card almost seem petty in comparison. (Almost, but not quite!)
