Little did I know last week (Think Tanks Battle For Candidates’ Ears) that the Center on American Progress has so many Obama ties to go along with its obvious Clinton connections (ie, John Podesta). Newest on my radar is Cassandra Butts, a CAP domestic policy guru who is moonlighting as an Obama advisor on her personal time. “Yes, there is a healthy competition among the think tanks to gain the ear of presidential candidates,” writes Butts in an email earlier today. “And CAP is well positioned to participate in those conversations.” I’ll say. Forget Hillary -- how are the other think tanks supposed to compete with that?
