The news headlines are quite a surprise. One of the headlines I saw involving lobbyists is similar to the same from 2009. The signs are there, these headlines tell a story contrary to election season rhetoric.
The good news is all the fiery talk of the election campaign seems less of an issue. The mixed news is many people who took the election season too seriously (on both sides) will have to think more about what these developments represent. In other news, it is time to move on.
