Presidential Lobbying

Do those on the receiving end of lobbying efforts become good lobbyists themselves? Has anyone looked at this? I'd love to see someone try to tackle that one. Maybe political returns to businesses with former Congressmen on their board of directors?

Anyway, here's Obama heading to Denmark in an attempt to get the Olympics in Chicago in 2016. (Which, I just realized, would be at the end of his second term, if he makes it that far, and would conceivably be a boon for the Democratic party in that fall's presidential election.)
