Daschle Cashes in

Ned and I are both on the road for the rest of this week, so blogging is a bit spotty. But here's a quick quip:

Former US Senator Tom Daschle has taken a job with a lobby firm. It's the same shop that Senator Bob Dole works for. Details are here in the Washington Post http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A32604-2005Mar13?language=printer

It's a free country and I guess anyone has a right to make a fast buck. But when we see prominent politicians of both parties moving so swiftly to cash in on their years in office, it reinforces the belief that people are going into politics to feather their own nest rather than acting as faithful public servants.
