Evidently, Obama is no longer a tool of the Chicago political machine. LOL

Obama has finally miraculously decided that a badly needed ethics reform bill in Illinois is worth more than friendships with Chicago machine politicians and the risk of being exposed as fraud reformer:

"The move marked a shift from last week, when Obama’s campaign ducked questions from the Chicago Sun-Times about whether Obama should intervene to save the ethics bill. Good-government activists and some elected officials reacted by publicly asking Obama to intercede with Jones."

... and Mr Jones reluctantly agreed
