Dubya apparently expects to raise $200 million for his presidential campaign -- a sum which covers only the primaries, in which he'll almost certainly be running unopposed, as there is public funding for major party candidates in the general election. Imagine how much money he'd have to raise if he had opposition. That's just about double what he raised for the last campaign -- and, coincidentally, the limit on individual contributions to campaigns has also doubled (under the one provision of the McCain Feingold law which is not under attack in the courts).

But seriously, folks. This is all going to be used to attack the Democrats early and often -- as the Democrats will, no doubt, spend quite a bit of time attacking each other. I've got a bad feeling about this...
