Is the DNC paying for this trip, or the loyal subjects? Shouldn't be more than $20 million for this junket.

This Arch Conservative did not comment on Bush's visits- when did he visit?
Public financing of elections? "We" can't afford it- let the unions and corporations make the donations.

Bush avoided the Bay Area (tho came to Hillsborough) and traveled to other California locales. For example, he came in Oct. 2001, Aug. 2004, Oct. 2005, Nov. 2007 Jan. 2008

Presidents help raise $$$ for the party and for future elections all the time.
