School Reform And Campaign Finance

Catching a rebroadcast of MSNBC's The Countdown last night, I was struck by the comments of one of the guests about what the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform legislation had -- and hadn't done. Obviously, given the early reports of massive fundraising, the law didn't get the money out of politics. It's as big or bigger than ever. But, as MSNBC's David Schuster points out, the law did increase transparency and accountability in campaign finance, giving reporters and the public more information about where they money is coming from and making candidates a little more accountable for what they do. Sound familiar?
