This Newsweek article about candidates’ competing for staffers for their campaigns reminded me that it’s been a while since I last asked around about who’s covering education for the campaigns. As I recall, MaryEllen McGuire had moved from Dodd’s committee staff to the campaign, and there were some folks moonlighting for Obama from the Center on American Progress. But that was about it. No “big” names jumping in early in order to get a plum job in the next administration. Not that working on education for a campaign is as much of a big deal as some folks like to think it is. (The Talent Primary).
