Times Change

From John McCain’s press conference today:

I have many friends who represent various interests ranging from firemen to police to senior citizens to various interests that appear before my committee.

McCain defending the honor of lobbyists … it’s not 2000 anymore.  

Also, compare his comment with what Hillary Clinton said about lobbyists at YearlyKos last year:

A lot of those lobbyists whether you like it not, represent real Americans. They represent nurses, social workers and yes, they represent corporations and they employ a lot of people.

In other words, don’t expect this to be a terrible point of contention if Clinton secures the nomination.
