Hillary Tells Obama/Edwards Lobbyists Work for "Real Americans"

I think the only news over the weekend was the difference of opinion on Lobbying.I see this as Hillary's first Gaffe of the primary. Are americans in Iowa and New Hampshire going to believe lobbyists work for them? No doubt, HIllary will be looking to distract the public on this by some opposition research.
I can't wait to see Hillary defend the powerful social workers lobby against defense contractors' and pharma lobbies.
The nurses and social workers lobbies in 2006 spent several hundred thousand. The Pharmaceuticals and insurance companies over $300 million - more than 10% of all lobbying money.If anyone from the Edwards or Obama campaign reads this forward on to your supervisor to get that high quality video (at least NBC has it of Yearly Kos) of Hillary saying "Lobbyists work for real americans".
It's already going to be fun watching the Youtubes.
