37. I agree with you, however I did like Obama's answer to the money issue,
when Letterman brought up how money was corrupting the system, Obama promoted public campaign financing and how the head of CBS would probably be against it, Letterman changed the subject real quick.

I believe that was Obama's finest moment. We cannot sit idly by while the mass corporate media trash our candidates for raising money, when the media are the primary cause and beneficiary of it. Clean up your own house mass corporate media, and quit charging the American People an arm and a leg just to get information on the candidates for the highest, most powerful job in the nation.
