UBecause Not Everyone Can Just Write a Check to Finance His Senate Campaign

The Springfield State Journal Register tells us why it is important to click on the photo of the nice man on the right side of this page:
State Sen. Barack Obama, D-Chicago, who is running for Fitzgerald's open [Senate] seat, listed his 2003 state salary as $65,786 and his University of Chicago Law School salary as $64,287. He listed assets, including retirement funds, ranging from $145,000 to $350,000 and no liabilities.
If it seems like this Obama fella has dedicated his life to public service instead of using his Harvard law degree to line his pockets, its because he has. You can click here to support his dedication.

Update: Barack's wife Michelle does earns a salary of more than $1,000 from the University of Chicago's hospital.
