Barack Obama says he won't take money from lobbyists, but as the Boston Globe reveals:
... behind Obama's campaign rhetoric about taking on special interests lies a more complicated truth. A Globe review of Obama's campaign finance records shows that he collected hundreds of thousands of dollars from lobbyists and PACs as a state legislator in Illinois, a US senator, and a presidential aspirant.

In other news, it seems Marc Ambinder has caught John McCain in an Iowa fib (don't you hate it when bloggers actually do research!?!?) See John McCain is saying that he never intended to play in the Ames Straw Poll. But that's not what an old McCain press release said ...
