Is Hillary Really Influenced By Lobbyists And PACs??


by Jeff Dinelli

Really interesting story in the Boston Globe today stating that "PACs and lobbyists aided Obama's rise" and "Through June, according to the Center For Responsive Politics, Clinton had collected $413,000 from lobbyists and $533,000 from PACs -- leading all 2008 presidential contenders in both categories." Those numbers for Hillary add up to less than $1 million out of a total of $60 million raised.

The article details Obama's fund-raising efforts through the very means he and John Edwards are now criticizing Hillary for. Check it out.
