    Sure they can. Their customers are the big contributors, who buy them a place on the ballot and commercials. Then they somehow get elected even with single digit approval ratings.

    I think Joe Citizen voter is not in the top 3-4 of the average elected officals priority list, but even big contributors have to have their people fly and when Donnie Deep pockets and Suzzie Special interst have their flights delayed/canexed for political gamesmenship and pick up the phone and call the Senator/Rep theu paid for......things happen.

    I am not cynical of our political system one bit. ;)
