Blogs For Victory asks “What’s this “we” stuff, Obama?”

Obama on what “we” will need to do:

And does anyone want to imagine what screams there would be if anyone proposed a tax on Pelosi’s winery?

McCain had a net worth estimated at $28.5 million, with most of the wealth attributed to his wife Cindy’s family fortune.

It’s good to run for President.
