I would agree that the heavy and somewhat premature financing of another Bush family member for some future office might seem a little alarming. Think how the other side viewed the Kennedys. (See: "New Bush candidacy," Saturday)

A more recent example of unfair advantage is public-sector, and to some extent, private-sector unions using dues money paid unwillingly to fund mainly Democratic Party candidates.

It is those same Democrats who when elected "negotiate" with the same public-sector unions for the union members' pay and benefits.
