Screw The Limits!
As someone recently said (I forget who), if the Dean campaign is even seriously toying with the idea of forgoing federal funding that has to be a scary message for all the other campaigns. In order for them to even be considering this it must mean that Dean's campaign suspects that they could raise more than $45 million by the end of the year. If they really can do that then I say screw the limits and screw those who are screaming that Dean is being hypocritical about taking the matching funds. This is a war folks and you don't win wars by entering the battlefield with one hand tied behind your back. (Matt Singer post some speculation about Dean raising $20 million for the 3rd quarter. I won't go that far, but I think $10+ million is certainly possible.)
