Binge, Purge

In a quiet, but significant move, the Obama administration is flushing all the lobbyists out of all of the governmental advisory boards.

This is a big deal in the second tier political class as many, many, many have made their livings off lobbying money based on their board placements and connections. Plus, it's something of a partisan wash as many of those placement favors granted by the Bush flacks and the Republican Congresses are washed out.

Now, this doesn't remove everybody, but it significantly reshapes the industry and Republican partisan balance of second tier political policy Washington.
