folks, these kinds of career moves should be against the law: Tim Pawlenty to head U.S. bank lobbying group. Are you serious? Why do we tolerate this? Sorry, you take one career path and sometimes it excludes you from another, that's life.
I mean, I've read about teachers not getting a job because someone finds a porno they were in years ago, yet going from politics to lobbying seems way more obscene to me than that.
