And Then You Hire David Gergen.

When I first read this piece (from Politico), I thought it was from The Onion. I thought the bit about lobbyists being "policy experts" was a particularly good gag.

Alas, it's not a parody. It's the Beltway choir, singing its two greatest hits: "What About Me" and "Our Way."

Perhaps realizing that President Obama has another two years (at least) to live with these people, Americans have rallied a bit to his side. The President's approval rating is up 4 percentage points since the mid-term elections.
