Buying A Job

Here's the Wall Street Journal's link to a graph of the current fundraising totals for each Presidential candidate.
The job pays about $250K per year, but has great benefits and retirement.
All figures on the graph are expressed in millions.
Unbelieveable. And we're just getting started.
The cost of the Apollo Space Missions, which put a man on the moon - $126 billion.
The cost of giving Saddam Hussein a necktie party and a dirt nap? - $800 billion, and counting.
The cost of putting someone into The White House? The candidates have gotten their hands on about $300 million so far. I'm betting total spending will top 1 billion.
