The Obama campaign just sent me an email with a link to this video about Barack’s position on New Orleans. It is compelling to watch. But here’s my thought: why doesn’t Barack pledge to contribute 10% of all his fundraising dollars to help New Orleans directly? That could be anywhere from $50mm to $100mm — not chump change. Wouldn’t that be a great way to do avoding wasting more money on tv ads and to prove his resolve to fix this tragic national blight?
