    Sen. Obama is head of an organization with half billion dollars in revenue, about 2000 paid staff, more volunteers than there are residents of Wasilla, and far more shareholders than there are residents of Alaska. Finally, as far as I know, he is not in the red.

      Obama put together an incredible organization, and has run it beautifully.  Thing is, when it comes to managing a tight budget, when it comes to cutting budgets with a scalpel instead of a hatchet, he probably learned the important stuff 20 years ago as a community organizer.

      Bush ran a couple companies into the ground, and then was bailed out by his father's friends.  McCain ran his own campaign into near financial collapse in 2007.  And Palin ran Wasilla into debt.  Come to think of it, I'm sure there's an investment bank drooling over the prospect of hiring them... :)

      •  Obama would be brilliant in business if he wanted (0+ / 0-)

        to go that way.

        Thank God he wants to serve his country as President, at this moment in history.
