Finger-pointing for the implosion of Hillary Clinton’s campaign continues apace. The popular pick has been Mark Penn, whose microtrends have been no match for Obama’s macro appeal, but articles in the Atlantic and The New Republic make a convincing case that Patti Solis Doyle, sister of alderman Danny Solis, hasn’t been much help. Michelle Cottle writes in the latter:
Solis Doyle has developed a reputation for mucking around in the weeds, insisting upon signing off on even low-level decisions, such as where to hold a minor event and whether bagels or donuts should be served. (That’s not a hypothetical.)
I bet David Axelrod would go with bagels and donuts.
