Obama Overwhelms Microsoft

How Sweet it is. Politico reports

A milestone of sorts was reached earlier this year, when Obama, the Illinois senator whose revolutionary online fundraising has overwhelmed Clinton, filed an electronic fundraising report so large it could not be processed by popular basic spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel 2003 and Lotus 1-2-3.

Of course it just means more money for Microsoft and less for integrity as goo-goo groups have to buy new software.

I have Microsoft excel 2002 (it came pre-installed) so I can't read Obama's latest fundraising report unless someone else saves it in some decent format like STATA *.dta (please don't bother and especially please please don't e-mail me the *.dta file).

And yes, I know, Politico will do anything for a link, but accuracy is accuracy.
