After Barack abandoned his pledge to accept campaign finance limits, becoming the first presidential candidate ever to abandon public campaign funding, it shouldn't be a surprise that  more campaign finance hypocrisy from the Obama camp is on the way.

Nonetheless, it's worth noting that after long decrying "soft money" in politics, the Obama campaign is now seeking soft money from unions and other Dem deep pockets in order to finance the Democratic National Convention.

Is there a pattern emerging here?  Barack seems to be unwilling to himself live under the laws that he prescribes for all the rest of us.
