Basically he will not pay blood money to the ward bosses in cash for the traditional Philadelphia "Street Money"

Barack Obama may lose support in Philadelphia over 'street money' (http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-streetmoney11apr11,0,6553901.story)

I think it is a principled stand, what do you think, should he be playing ball with the ward bosses.

GO OBAMA!Yes but in a contest where losing by a wide margin might be disastrous for him it might not be smart politics. I give the guy credit for moral courage, but lately he is flailing in his campaign efforts.

I think he's got a good enough get-out-the-vote organization that he doesn't need it.

That would be wonderful. Street money sure sounds like extortion and racketeering, I don't see how it can be legal.
