Besides friends and family, what did you miss most about Earth when you were in space?

Can you explain how consultants gum up the works in DC? I understand consulting is closely related to lobbying, and the abundance of corporate lobbyists in America has had a greatly negative influence on the direction of government, but the concept of consulting still seems valid to me. Government officials have to create policy for all sorts of fields that they don't have any expertise in; think tanks and the consultants they employ are a tool to help fill in the gaps.

I don't mean to sound like my mind is made up; I really do want to understand where you're coming from. It's just difficult for me to understand being against consultants across the board.
