Mark Penn Out....Sort Of
Last week, Clinton advisor extraordinaire Mark Penn trotted off to Columbia in his role as chief executive to a lobbying firm to discuss promoting a free trade deal that Clinton has said she was against. This was especially bad timing considering Clinton is campaigning in Pennsylvania where jobs have been lost to companies moving their manufacturing to other countries.
Now the Clinton camp is saying he was asked to resign from his role of Chief Strategist. However, he will continue to do the polling and provide "advice".
......Presumably on strategy?
It's good that they made a nice, clean break to distance themselves to what might be seen as a conflict of interest.
