What should Obama do with his $30 million campaign surplus?

He’s got gobs of cash and lots of grumbly Democrats who want to get their paws on it all.

Legally, he can:

1) donate the extra money to charity

2) Transfer it to another political campaign

3) Dole it out in $2,000 increments to local candidates.

What to do? What to do?

Democrats carrying significant campaign debt after winning a string of House and Senate races are grumbling about President-elect Barack Obama’s financial reserves, saying the party’s leader is sitting on a pile of cash while Democratic leaders are broke.

Obama’s organization retains some $30 million after his successful presidential bid, but it’s unclear how the Democratic president-in-waiting might use the money. Members of his party are doing their best to appeal for the funds without appearing greedy, ungrateful or hostile to their new leader.

“If I was a top adviser to the president elect, I wouldn’t necessarily be advocating saving those dollars,” said Raymond Buckle, chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party. “It was critically important that we not repeat what happened in ’93, ’94,” when President Bill Clinton held the purse strings and Democrats lost 54 U.S. House seats and eight senators during midterm elections.

“We need the resources to build the national grass roots network for the Obama agenda. We need to make sure the president is successful and that the administration fulfills his promises,” Buckley said.

Who votes for having him send it to his impoverished family members and the neglected Obama school in Kenya?
