Obama camp says election showed The White House isn't for sale

President Obama's campaign held what it says is its last conference call with reporters, mocking the super PACS that poured tens of millions of dollars into defeating Obama -- and came up short. 

If he had been a billionaire donor, campaign strategist David Axelrod said, "I'd be wanting to talk to someone and asking them where my refund is, because they didn't get much for their money."

He suggested one of the "heartening" lessons from the election "is that you can't buy the White House. You can't overwhelm the Congress with these super-PAC dollars."
