    Who are lobbyists but citizens who hope to forward their ideas to government? And who does she know but insiders? The only solution to all those issues you've named is "transparency".

    The current front runner is AG Andrew Cuomo who isnt that bad.

    Sure the some lobbyists are citizens but they are lobbying for special privileges the rest of us do not have. That is counter to the letter of the law. If all she knows are insiders more the reason she should not have the position. The best way for government to work is a competition of idea's not a collusion. I won't hold my breath on transparency.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
