Lou Dobbs is a journalist

(CNN) -- There's no denying both political parties in Congress are now owned lock, stock and barrel by corporate interests. Our nation's elected officials in Washington have formed a partnership with the corporate supremacists and special interest groups in an effort to drive profits to the bottom line of U.S. multinationals at the expense of hard-working Americans.

So begins Lou Dobbs' article. Click through to read more. How encouraging to see someone in the mainstream media speaking honestly.

Awesome. That's why I lean towards Dean's new populist money-raising scheme.

Doug,
Yeah, that's why I gave to Dean too. However, it is an open question whether this strategy can really work. Clearly most of the Democratic leadership have serious doubts. The economics of the present set-up are simple to understand. It's a quid-pro-quo system where companies pay for friendly legislation. The returns on corporate donations are so high that they could easily give several tens of times more and still have it be worthwhile. The average Joe has no such luck. If the Dems. bet on Joe, they may be out of luck.
