We’re just floating back into WiFi range after a weekend adrift on flooded plains, so we’re just now able to talk about another of our arranged marriages we attempt occasionally. In this case, it could be the biggest powerhouse political marriage since Bill and Hillary, James Carville and Mary Matalin, and Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon.
(”Thumbs up to trying to hook up my campaign manager!”)
We read over the weekend about a campaign power broker that has risen to national attention with Barack Obama’s ascension to the Democratic nomination for President. David Plouffe, Obama’s campaign manager in 2004’s successful Senatorial bid and in his current campaign, has been christened the current political genius of this campaign season.
Plouffe also has an unabiding passion for baseball, having grown up a Phillies fan in Delaware and owning Nationals season tickets. (That’s dedication to the craft, really.) Therefore, we couldn’t help but imagine another brilliant young man whose love for politics rivals his love for baseball. Also, the two men have a passion for numbers in both arenas, leading them to success.
