There are no rules in a knife fight 

Pardon me for being cynical, but Obama's decision that the Democrats should refuse donations from businesses and interest groups strikes me as a sort of silly and ultimately unproductive.
Obama will get some style points from the election reform folks, but style points don't win elections. The general public is only going to notice that the Republicans and their friends are running a lot more TV ads than the Democrats are. Downticket Democrats who don't have Obama's fundraising charisma will be worried and resentful, while it will provoke a lot of corporations and businesses and interest groups to join the "he's too inexperienced" chorus.
But then again, maybe I'm just too cynical.
