Dodd Retirement May Help Banking Bill?

Analysis: Dodd Retirement May Help Banking Bill - ABC News

I love the first line of this article
Freed from his liberal base and moneyed donors, Sen. Chris Dodd can now cast himself as the honest broker in negotiations over a massive Wall Street regulation bill.

This is an interesting analysis for ABC News Jim Kuhnhenn, but I can't help but snicker when I read this. That somehow honesty and integrity can only occur when you are without a base or donor or therefore an agenda.

My guess is that a politician can leave politics, but the politics doesn't leave the Politician.
