"Socialists and libertarians make bad lobbyists"

The Washington Examiner has more here.

"One reason 'moderates' make better lobbyists is the very fact that they often don't operate according to political principles. Their 'pragmatism' leaves them open to taking a whole variety of courses and accepting a range of consequences if it gets them what they want. This doesn't mean they're not eyeing the public good -- it just means that they don't heed many roadblocks on the path to what they think is best."
