The death of public financing for presidential campaigns

According to the Post, Hillary!(TM) is shoveling the dirt on the coffin of public financing for presidential campaigns, officially killing off one of the great post-Watergate reforms. The irony here is that hubby's escapades killed off the independent counsel law. If you ask me, good riddance to both.

Hillary is going to raise over $500 million, so she'll never touch public financing. It does, however, help the mid-tier candidates stay competitive.
