Obama: McCain Puts Lobbyists 'In Charge'

clipped from
Sen. Barack Obama said Saturday that the
Republican presidential nominee in waiting, Sen. John McCain, has
lobbyists as top aides and "many of them have been running their
business on the campaign bus while they've been helping him."
The Democratic presidential hopeful also said McCain's health
care plans reflect "the agenda of the drug and insurance
lobbyists, who back his campaign and use money and influence to
block real health care reform."
Jill Hazelbaker, a spokeswoman for McCain, said the Arizona
senator "has been an agent for change for his entire career - he
is the greatest change agent in our party - and we plan to
highlight that record in this election."
Obama broadened his criticism to McCain's ties to lobbyists
He takes their money and has put them in charge
of his campaign."
Obama was referring to Charlie Black
to a recent published report that said the McCain strategist, who
is a registered lobbyist, does a lot of work by phone from McCain's
campaign bus.
