Strike at the Roots!

-RPK

I listened to Lawrence Lessig last night on Campus talk about his perspective on reducing corruption in our political system.  It was a very moving talk, in which he outlined a very compelling argument for where to focus our reform energies:  moving to a more republic form of campaign finance (through individual credits), and limiting lobbying influence.  

One prong to his approach, is getting congressional candidates to sign pledges (and maybe full binding contracts) promising that if elected, they will not than transition to lucrative K street jobs.  I like the idea (I think it should apply to staff also).  So, who will be the first candidate in Montana to sign?
