Over 1,000,000 Voters Fund Obama's Campaign

I'd say that Obama's campaign is already publicly funded. This TPMCafe post adds a little more thought to Obama's options on public funding.

I did a little digging and found Michael Dobbs' WaPo Factchecker column on this topic which has links to all the original documents. My bottom line differs from Dobbs. There is nothing in any of the prior letters or statements in which Obama says he will unilaterally commit to public financing. Even the most recent specific statement in Sept. 2007 indicates that if he becomes the nominee, he would pursue a joint plan with the Republican nominee.
