Here's a decent article on the Romney transition, known as the Romney Readiness Project. Yep, I was one of the 300 folks toiling away so that we could be ready. The work was fascinating and we moved forward as if victory were certain--which is what I hope you would have wanted from us. It was always cool to go to HQ and run into policy big-wigs that wonks like me follow.
If the campaign were run as effectively as the transition team, well, maybe today would have turned out a little differently, with Kid Rock singing rather than Beyonce.
