Political Contributions Imponderable

I was playing possum a little bit when I mused in my last entry about why so many contributions "of the stars" were for $2300 and $4600. I knew that the maximum contribution for an individual was $2300, but I thought that the $4600 was some loophole to include a spouse or dependent. Several readers, the first being "Scout," a proud denizen of AOLand, provided the full poop. You are allowed $2300 per election: $2300 for the primary, and $2300 for the general election. My, contributors are pretty confident if they contribute for the general election upfront.
