Dueling Politicos

Talk about a happy meal. Though he spent only two hours and 20 minutes in Portland, President Bush walked away $1 million richer--making his luncheon fundraiser a record-setter at more than $7,000 per minute. Bush's $2,000 lunch was open to the press--but he didn't speak to them. By contrast, Democratic nominee wannabe Howard Dean's Sunday lunch fundraiser at the home of Terry Bean was smaller (about 60 people) and, at $1,000 per person, right off the value menu. While Dean chez Bean was a media-free affair, the doctor was also in at Portland State University, where he spoke to a crowd of 5,000 and, later, to reporters. Here's how the campaign fare fared.
