63. Was anyone on Obama's staff a paid lobbyist for a country involved in his visit?
You do realize that McCain's campaign staffer was paid to work on behalf of Georgia in our country and that there are more than just political discussions had when someone is paid to lobby for you? Those people are negotiating on your behalf which is a direct violation of the law Will is discussing.

Obama visited other countries, probably discussed policy views but McCain's guy actually is paid to negotiate on behalf of this other country.

Big difference.
