8. What good are lobbyists if they can't

inject themselves into the process? Nothing to see here.

I guess this is fine because its is 'accountable' money in politics, not the 'unaccountable' money. After Sec. Clinton made such a grand statement about eliminating the corrupting influence of unaccountable money from our politics last night, this could be seen as hypocrisy, saying one thing and immediately doing another. It would be downright Orwellian. We all know, the accountable money is uncorrupting.

I guess the federal ban on contributions by lobbyists is not part of the Obama legacy on which Sec. Clinton wants to improve. Then again, maybe this is an indication of her idea of improvement.

Anybody want to defend the timing on this lifting of this ban?
