Former Fannie Mae Chairman Jim Johnson Still Working For Obama’s Campaign
Not even remotely under the bus. Jim Johnson has already been under there once after getting booted off Obama’s VP search team. My impression is that unlike Grandma, Johnson simply had too much money and influence for Obama to keep him down there. Despite his ties to the Frannie/Freddie freakout he’s still coordinating with Tom Daschle to pimp Obama to reluctant Clinton team members:
Former Senator Tom Daschle, a top Obama backer, emailed a select list this afternoon that he and Johnson would be leading a briefing intended largely for Clinton’s campaign brain trust next month.
“Jim Johnson and I have scheduled another informal breakfast discussion and update on the campaign early next month,” he wrote to a list including Senator John Kerry, James Carville, and Richard Holbrooke, as well as Clinton’s former top campaign aides, including Howard Wolfson, Geoff Garin, and Harold Ickes.
The October third breakfast is also a mark of the continuing effort to bring the ex-Clintonites into the Obama fold.
Let me get this straight.
Republicans are still being blamed for the mortgage meltdown? More than Democrats? This is simply the most astounding failure to communicate.
Here’s a reminder. Now email that to 3 friends or coworkers.
