The news reports that the 2008 election campaign will be the first billion dollar campaign. The candidates will spend a billion dollars of other people's money with the goal of becoming president. Unmentioned in the report is the fact that George Bush is spending two billion dollars a week on his campaign in Iraq, apparently with no goal at all in mind. Two billion a week is being spent, but a billion over two years is what's news.
