Flashback to February 2008:
Sen. Barack Obama Friday knocked Sen. Hillary Clinton for taking lobbyists' money and said she was too much a part of "business-as-usual in Washington" to bring about reform... "In this campaign, [Clinton has] taken nearly double the amount of money from lobbyists than any Democrat or Republican running for president," he said. "That's not being a part of the solutions business. That's being a part of business-as-usual in Washington..."
Now consider the implications of a "fusion" ticket consisting of Obama and Clinton.
Hmmm. That could be problematic.
Here's another ticket that might be more effective.
William Ayers is another potential running mate aligned with Obama's interests.
