After Abramoff...If you liked Jeffrey Birnbaum's cover story in the most recent issue of The Washington Monthly on how the Abramoff case could revolutionize the campaign finance system -- or if you didn't read it yet, or even if, hard to imagine, you read it and didn't like it -- you'll want to catch Birnbaum talking about the subject tomorrow morning at 8am on C-Span's "Washington Journal." Should be some good breakfast TV.

Interesting that this development is being driven by the Bush Justice Department. You could understand why Clinton's would not have wanted anything to do with such a thing. But Bush's administration has been as campaign-oriented as Clinton's was, and if anything closer to Republican members of Congress than Clinton was to Hill Democrats.

I would have thought Alberto Gonzales would have gotten pressure from the White House about a prosecutorial tactic that at this point is most likely to be used against Republican politicians. Then again, maybe he has.

Is that 8 a.m. EDT?

oops - too late. Damn.

Excellent article though.

No, I haven't read the article, but let me be the 1st to say this:

-the Abramoff affair will not significantly change how the system works. There may be some tinkering around the edges (i.e. you can;t be as blatant and visible as Abramoff was), but the fundamentals won;t change.

The players involved have a vested interest in keeping the status quo, so don;t expect anything meaningful.

In theory something will be done but...powerful forces want to keep up the rotten status quo. It will take constant fighting and vigilance by forces of reform to turn things around.
