The Obama/Biden ticket has been relentless with their criticism of John McCain and his association with former lobbyists. They might wish to rethink some of this rhetoric :
WASHINGTON — As Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama targets his Republican rival Sen. John McCain for hiring former lobbyists to work on his campaign, a key member of Obama’s campaign is paying a Washington lobbyist for legal advice: his running mate, Sen. Joe Biden.
Lobbyist William Oldaker continues to represent the Delaware Democrat in his simultaneous bid for Senate re-election, serving as legal counsel just as he has for Biden’s campaigns for the past 25 years.
The Center for Public Integrity has referred to Oldaker as “a rainmaker” for his ability to represent his clients with Congressional lawmakers. Oldaker’s client list includes the tobacco, oil, and pharmaceutical industries, as well as Native American gambling interests.
Some pretty big guns working on Biden’s Senate re-election campaign. Guess Joe doesn’t share the same level of certainty as some posters here toward the upcoming election.
