"In theory, public financing would level the playing field between Obama, who raised $37 million in January alone, and cash-strapped McCain—exactly what those who cheer public financing think the system should do.

The problem is that in a high-stakes presidential election, no one really wants to level the playing field, except the underdog. This explains why Obama thought it was so great before he found his fundraising groove. "
