Obama in 2007: You can't change your mind on outside groups
Via Beltway Confidential:
In 2008, no candidate was a bigger opponent of political action committees during the Democratic primary than Barack Obama.
While stumping in Iowa in 2007, Obama criticized his opponent John Edwards for changing his mind on 527 political action groups by allowing a former campaign manager to run a 527 on his behalf.
“You can’t say yesterday that you don’t believe in them and then today, have three-quarters of a million dollars being spent for you,” Obama said incredulously.
