Reason Magazine has taken note of Annie Duke’s newfound lobbying prowess, too. They were impressed by her ability to cite John Locke and John Stuart Mill.

It’s true that sometimes Beltway outsiders are the ones who can stir things up on the inside. Good stuff. I was about to say how come her Ultimate Bet cohort Phil Hellmuth hasn’t stepped up to the poker politics plate … but on second thought, really, considering what he might have to say and how he would say it, maybe that is for the best.

    I don’t know if Phil Hellmuth has the ability to do what Annie Duke and Howard Lederer do. The bro/sis duo each have an outstanding education and are quite intelligent. I’m not saying that’s not true of Phil, but he’s never demonstrated that he has the ability be speaking on behalf of hundreds of thousands of people.
