Land of opportunity

The top two Presidential campaign fundraisers for the first quarter of 2007:

Hillary Clinton: $26 million
Barack Obama: $25 million

Cursed nation, oppressively keeping the doors of opportunity closed to women and minorities. Well, at least the political arena is based exclusively on merit, unlike the entrenched subjectivity, celebrity, and furtive personal and social agendas that go into making a great theoretical physicist or mathematician!

Third is a Mormon. Then a Catholic. To get to a straight male protestant takes us out of the top of either party. Isn't it impossible for anyone else to win, unless they die like Kennedy!
