11. Ties into the earlier thread on the "entrenched interests"

I believe that "the powers that be" inside the beltway deeply fear a candidate who has a million donors. That includes the Clintons, the Bushes, the McCains, the lobbyists, the journalists ... nearly all of those involved in the machinery of government. The fact is that the whole system is driven by lobbyist money, but candidate with a million donors doesn't need lobbyist money. He can not be bought. For this reason, he is a dire threat to the entire system.

And that is why, it seems, Obama must be brought down ... even if the whole Democratic Party has to go down with him.
