News and Opinion on the Obama Public Financing Decision

NY Times (and here on the viability of the public financing system and this editorial)

Washington Post (and here on the prospects for congressional revamping of campaign financing and here factchecking the main question in the Potter-Bauer debate: did Sen. Obama, through Bob Bauer "aggressively pursue" a public financing agreement with Sen McCain?)

USA Today (See also this USA Today editorial and Sen. Obama's response.

Wall Street Journal

In a somewhat related oped, Jay Mandle writes "The Small Donor Fallacy" in the Washington Post and Bob Bauer responds.

Finally, almost 200 people so far at the Huffington Post have commented on my post yesterday about the Obama decision.
