More of that irony stuff
Posted by: McQ on Monday, August 20, 2007

If you are a political blogger, you have to love John Edwards lately:
"I don't believe you can change this country without taking on very entrenched interests in Washington, including lobbyists, that stand between us and the change that America needs. And I don't believe you can do it by sitting at a table, negotiating with them, and trying to bring them together. These people will never give away their power voluntarily. We have to take their power away from them. This is what I've been doing my whole life. And that's why I believe I am the candidate that can bring change to this country."
However, he believes you can negotiate with rogue states and jihadists, because, you know, he's pretty sure they will give their power away voluntarily if he asks nicely enough.

But not those lobbyists, by George.

As an aside, I have to wonder, speaking of entrenched interests, why anyone expects Congress to reform itself when it isn't in their self-interest to do so?

Exactly. And is he bracketing trial lawyers and public employee unions out of his definition of "entrenched interests?"
