This is just conjecture, but I believe that on the day of his swearing in he'll turn up in a military uniform with huge epaulettes and sunglasses with a Yasser Arafat tea towel on his head, demand a Qur'an to swear on and immediately make it illegal for white men to have any kind of fun.
America should be deeply concerned about this deeply flawed Communist fundamentalist Islamicist.
I would go even further than that. I believe that in the privacy of his own home he pines for the hot bottom of one Hassan i Sabbah and desires much canoodling and earlobe licking from him.

First the most insanely retarded unsubstantiated meme of all is that money alone can win an election. Secondly, you continually ignore the fact that it appears the campaigns have been successful in fundraising but at the expense of the party. Obama may be loaded but the DNC is broke.
Additionally just because Clinton was able to take in a maximum contribution from a donor doesn't mean that donor will turn around and be able to give Obama the same amount. They appear to be tapped out.
McCain has agreed to take public financing for the fall campaign which means $84 million. You add to that the RNC/DNC difference and things will certainly be competitive.
As for crowds, most of the stories talk about new Democratic registrations but fail to consider that many of them are Republicans who want to have a say in the Democratic nomination process. This will reset for the fall as these voters will come back to the fold.
Finally you keep pointing to your own "insanely retarded" meme which is that just because someone is "wildly popular" that it will somehow deliver votes. Clinton had high name recognition as did Giuliani. Fred Thompson was thought to be very popular as an example. That alone doesn't deliver a vote. Heck even McCain must be popular with a certain group or he wouldn't have the nomination. That still doesn't assure even I will vote for him.
