The McCain campaign on why their crowd sizes are much smaller than Obama's:
Mark Salter, a senior McCain adviser, said 1,400 people went through security to get to the Albuquerque event. And he said it costs a lot of money to build large crowds — money the McCain campaign doesn't have.On a side note, yesterday on Meet the Press 3 talking heads went on and on about the unfair fact that Obama had more money than McCain; the corrupting power of money, this was the end of public financing, blah, blah blah. What they and moderator Tom Brokow failed to mention is that most of Obama's money came from small donors. Regular people. 3.1 million of them to be exact, giving on average less than $100 dollars. Where is the "corrupting influence" in that?
How do those people get those jobs?
