It’s still a financially Herculean task to compete against the two major parties’ multi-million dollar campaigns to get their candidate into a job that pays only $400,000 per year. And one which they must resign from after 8 years anyway. Simple math doesn’t justify such an insanely expensive job campaign. But it makes sense when one adds up what the interest groups behind those campaign dollars have to gain.
With only two weeks away from the election, there are still millions of Americans who feel they are without a candidate. And not because they’re undecided. They’re actually decided on the fact that neither Obama nor McCain represent anything they stand for.
