Porter Novelli’s global head of public affairs Kiki McClean told Fox Business not to look too deeply in to the departures of Chris Dodd and Byron Dorgan from the Senate. “It’s a fluke of scheduling,” said the former Hillary Clinton strategist. It won’t affect President Obama’s aggressive pushes on healthcare reform, climate change, and the upcoming jobs bill.
Smart leaders, i.e. in the Governors races in 2010, will focus on job creation, according to McClean. There are 34 Gubernatorial elections this fall. We’ll be looking for some wild and woolly rhetoric and spending come time.
