Hillary's gang

Here's an interesting piece on Hillary's gang -- aides and advisers who have been with her a long time. Patti Solis Doyle, Hillary's first hire in 1991, is still with her, now as overseer of the national campaign. Ann Lewis is still around, and is former White House social secretary Capricia Marshall, and Evelyn Lieberman, who fired Monica Lewinsky,and Maggie Williams. And Mandy Grunwald, Neera Tanden and Huma Abedin.

A few men are allowed into the inner circle, including strategist (whatever that is -- when I see the term as a description on a talking head on cable news I always assume it's an unemployed campaign consultant) Mark Penn, communications director Mark Wolfson, Harold Ickes (perfect name), and Terry McAuliffe.

The only person who has run for president in the last couple of decades that I've found inherently interesting is Ron Paul, Still, perhaps we should start memorizing these names now because these people could be running our lives in a couple of years.
