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.
