Stephen Aftergood provides these transsparency quotes from the Big Three in a recent issue of Nieman Watchdog (2-7-08). Keep these in mind during pre and post-election days.

“Excessive administration secrecy… feeds conspiracy theories and reduces the public’s confidence in government,” Sen. John McCain

“I’ll turn the page on a growing empire of classified information,” Sen. Barack Obama.

“We’ll protect sources and methods, but we won’t use sources and methods as pretexts to hide the truth.” “We need a return to transparency and a system of checks and balances, to a president who respects Congress’s role of oversight and accountability,” Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Can anyone provide parallel quotes from Minnesota senatorial wannabe’s?
