  • THAT WAS THEN: Things turned out OK for Blanche Lincoln after political victories such as this one turned into a big defeat.
There's life after U.S. Senate defeat. The Hill puts former Sen. Blanche Lincoln on its list of top lobbyists. It commented:

Huge clients were already lining up to work with the former senator before she opened her own shop last year.

Whenever I read about top lobbyists I remember the Arkansas lobbyist who often wore a T-shirt to light-hearted closing hours of the legislative session with this message:

I'm a lobbyist. Don't tell my mother. She thinks I'm a piano player in a whorehouse.
