The question about Obama and Rahm Emmanuel made me wonder. Personally I never thought Obama was "The One" or some great agent of change. To me he was simply the nominee whose party & platform I agreed with more. So, while learning of possible corruption is disheartening to me, it's no big shocker.
Can you think of anyone in DC who is really honest and completely free of questionable activities or associations?
I can only think of 2 who I believe are for real, but I may have missed something. Paul & Kucinich.
What about you?

I know the quote is "absolute power corrupts absolutely" But I think ANY power corrupts. I think many (Obama included) go in with their hearts in the right place, but with enough people fawning over you and telling you how great you are and giving you whatever you want, it goes to anyone's head!
