"The single most important thing you can do to get elected is to have street money!" Rendell shouted, adding, "There are people from the Obama campaign here, so let's all say it again. The most important thing you can do to get elected is have street money!"
Street money is key to the exercise of democracy. No wonder the Obama campaign violated his pledge to accept public financing.
This article, that ran in the Philadelphia Daily News, indicates that the Obama campaign will start ponying up street money soon.
Look at it this way: At least the Obama campaign will be contributing to the city's GDP by giving those ward heelers all that "walking around money" to buy enough votes in order to win Pennsylvania.
But Brady said that the campaign has promised street money to pump up turnout in November. And now that Obama is the official nominee, his campaign will team up with the city's Democratic ward leaders, who traditionally help get out votes.
