Obama’s achievements stem largely from two choices: He cast a wider net to attract donors during the crowded Democratic primaries and caucuses, and he was willing to hand over some control to both small and large donors.Nothing wrong with wanting to donate to the man you want to win the election. But it does call into question when so many safeguards built into website services software regarding online transactions are turned off. Last I knew, John Galt from Ayn Rand Lane, Bart Simpson from 742 Evergreen Terrace, and Good Will Hunting could still donate to Barack Obama.
