Buddy Roemer Drops Out Of Presidential Race

"As I am no longer a candidate for president, I am free to pledge a good portion of the rest of my life to enacting campaign reform in the halls of Congress and the corridors of the White House. Instead of using my right to the floor of Congress to lobby for corporate clients, I will lobby for the American people who want reform," he said. "To be successful, this endeavor must cross party lines. In truth, the two major parties are addicted to special interests and corporate money. I have said it many times: they are joined at the billfold. The two parties have been graveyards of reform too often in the past. They don’t want reform. They only want victory and reelection."

After Buddy announced he was out I saw Rocky Anderson's open letter to Buddy. Campaign finance reform is my biggest issue and now it seems Rocky is the only candidate in the field really pushing this. His letter is here:
