48. I have to say something here about Biden
Obviously, I have supported him.

But he is really getting a bad rap about being owned by corporations.
Yeah - I know, everyone here is going to start up about MBNA.
But the reality is, of all of the candidates, Biden is at the bottom of receiving corporate dollars for campaign contributions.
He has twice now spoken out against corporate/lobby dollars at the debates - calling for Public financing of elections.

Do your research. Biden's biggest contributors are attorneys. Then compare him to the rest.
