Democratic Sen. Jon Tester of Montana earlier this week announced he was getting aboard the legislation recently offered by Sen. Michael Bennet of Colorado: permanently bar members of Congress from becoming registered lobbyists after they leave office.

He was on Neil Cavuto's show on Fox earlier this week to explain the proposal. As you can see, it seems like an eminently sensible idea.

Which means, of course, that it's doomed. But it will be very interesting to see how this plays out on The Hill.
