telenovela watching, former campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle is back in the news again. This time Politico is reporting that the former woman in charge of Hillaryland is speaking with Obama’s chief strategist, David Axelrod. Both know each other from their days working up the political ladder in Chicago. Solis Doyle has actually known Axelrod longer than she has known the Clintons.
While some may argue that Solis Doyle ran the Clinton campaign into a deep hole, I think that she might have something to offer Obama. I doubt that she would replace any of his key strategists, but she might be able to assist him in turning out the Latino vote, which Clinton’s operation did very well. She told Politico, “If Barack Obama’s the nominee, I’ll do everything I can to get him elected.” That’s the spirit of unity I like to see.
