Not that anyone in the MSM is interested, but there's an interesting story out there about Barack's ties to George Soros.

George Soros contributed more than $60,000 to Barack's run for the US Senate in 2004. 

Now, John Podesta is head of the Obama "transition team."   He's also President and CEO of the Center for American Progress, which George Soros helped to fund.  Cassandra Butts -- who's in charge of personnel for the transition -- is also on the CAP payroll.  She's known Barack since they began law school together.

Soros has given more than $5 million to MoveOn.org, and at least $150,000 to ACORN.  Both of them, to put it mildly, have been extremely helpful to Barack.  He's also made a concerted effort to get his message out through extensive media investments.

For someone who is not an American citizen, Soros takes an awful lot of interest in what goes on here.

So just how much influence would George Soros have in an Obama administration?  And shouldn't someone in the MSM be asking?
