Doolittle misses marks

Doolittle’s problem is his failure to understand the difference between serving the public and serving himself; between lobbying and bribery; between reform of lobbying and reform of the system; between one man/one vote and one corporation/many votes; between government by special interest and government by and for the people. For Doolittle, representing his constituents and representing his donors is a conflict of interest, yet he fails, above all, to see himself as having been corrupted by it all.
