Dem insider: Obama’s lobbyist ban will end in 2017
Democratic Strategist Tony Podesta says that while President Obama’s attempt to keep from cozying up with lobbyists served as a good campaign line, he doesn’t anticipate the next round of presidential candidates to follow suit.
Podesta also says lobbyists have experience that is hard to match when filling cabinet positions, and he anticipates Obama’s ban on lobbyists to end after he leaves office in 2017.
