Hillary Campaign Cans Mark Penn


Trouble (or, you know, more trouble) in Hillaryland: “New York Sen. Hillary Clinton has replaced the longtime chief strategist of her presidential campaign, Mark Penn, after disclosure that he was working with Colombia’s government to help win congressional approval of a trade pact that she opposes. In a statement, campaign manager Maggie Williams said that ‘after the events of the last few days, Mark Penn asked to give up his role as chief strategist.’ But Clinton campaign advisers made clear that he was all but forced out for what Mr. Penn on Friday conceded was ‘an error in judgment.'”

Penn can at least console himself with the fact that he will likely be remembered as the architect of a campaign that has made Susan Estrich‘s 1988 effort for Michael Dukakis seem like a model of Carl von Clausewitz-level strategic planning.
