ABSTRACT
The article asserts that the 2010 decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in the Citizens United versus (v.) the Federal Election Commission overturning a long-term trend to limit political spending of corporations will set the stage for a lucrative 2012 presidential campaign. It mentions that the ruling allows the formation of new super political action committees (PACs) with few limits on fundraising. The article also opines that the super PACs potentially diminish the role of political parties.
