From the "Yes, it makes a difference" file.
Matt Stoller gleaned this from Roll Call...
"Republican lobbyists are used to walking into an office and just saying, `I'd like you to do this,'" said one Republican operative who regularly lobbies across the aisle. "With Democrats, you really have to hone your arguments, and you really have to sell them on policy."Poor babies.
There's a difference between accessibility and acquiescence. There's a difference between Democrats and Republicans.
And it's a difference that makes a difference.
