Obama's Lobbyists

The Great New Hope turns out to be just another politician. Tell me again what else qualified him to be a Presidential candidate apart from his hopey, changey, not like the others vibe?

Mr. Obama is running as a reformer who is seeking to reduce the influence of special interests. But like any other politician, he has powerful constituencies that help shape his views. And when it comes to domestic ethanol, almost all of which is made from corn, he also has advisers and prominent supporters with close ties to the industry at a time when energy policy is a point of sharp contrast between the parties and their presidential candidates.

Looks like the inexperienced Obama learns to do things the Washington way pretty quick to me.
