Will UW-Madison hire an Obama hack as their chief spokesman?


UW-Madison has winnowed the list of candidates for the open spokesman position to just three people. Unfortunately, one of the three finalists is an Obama campaign hack. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain why that’s just a bad idea for a university struggling to get along with a Republican legislature.

Universities should not be the golden parachute for Democratic Party officials who see their run in Washington D.C. temporarily come to an end. Obama’s people should find a spot for Colburn the old-fashioned way, creating a shell Political Action Committee like Russ Feingold’s Progressive United to keep campaign staff paid until they’re needed again.
