Submission + - Lobbying in US, Indian Firms Present American Face (

openbear writes: Interesting story over at the NYT about the new political posturing of Indian companies brought on by the heat of the upcoming presidential race: "They have hired a former official in the Bush administration as a lobbyist. They are humanizing the issue by bringing Americans they have hired into meetings with politicians. And, most striking, they have mastered the Washington art of waging proxy battles through local organizations, which allows them to not appear to be foreigners with an agenda."

Some people have a great ambition: to build something that will last, at least until they've finished building it.
