Doug Lerner reports from Tokyo and St. Louis, and points beyond…

The Obama campaign is trying to change history, claiming that “in fact” Obama never pledged to forgo private funding in the general election if his opponent did as well.

The fact is he did make such a pledge.

See the Midwest Democratic Network questionnaire at

Question I-B:
If you are nominated for President in 2008 and your major opponents agree to forgo private funding in the general election campaign, will you participate in the presidential public financing system?

Obama’s answer: “Yes.”

So much for no more “politics as usual”.
