A Poltician’s Burden – Pleasing Their Financiers

Ever thought about a politician’s cost to run a successful campaign.

No. Neither have I.

Cenk Uygur, a political commentator for TYT On-line News Network (http://www.tytnetwork.com/), has and he’s summarized his observations in a short weblog (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PyltezgnEX8).

After watching Mr. Uygur’s weblog, I wondered, what do “investors” in political campaigns want in return for their financing?

Or, as suggested by Mr. Uygur, to whom does the successful politician “owe” allegiance, their voting public or their deep-pocket financiers?
