He may look like your next door neighbor (you know, the one with the Golden Retriever that keeps crapping on your lawn), but this Über-Nerd is a killer when it comes to politics. While Bill Daley runs the day to day at the White House (presumably), David Plouffe has Mr. Obama in full throttle campaign mode.
But this ain't 2008, and it appears Plouffe is a uni-dimensional, linear thinker, i.e. hit 'em hard, hit 'em again and if that doesn't work hit 'em some more. Admittedly he doesn't have a whole lot to work with seeing as his client now has a track record etc., but even still, this guy has no finesse. It's either steamroll the competition or nothing. Well according to the Washington Post's latest poll, it's nothing.
I just don't see the liberal establishment putting up with hair-brained strategy until election day. Something has got to give, I'm just not sure what. But when it happens it will be swift and dramatic. Stay tuned.
