Wow, that’s not a positive development.
When you can your campaign manager it’s almost never a good sign. But there’s always the chance it is or, at least, can be presented as a clean break for a stalled operation. Al Gore sorta kinda pulled that off when he hired Donna Brazile in 2000 — at around the same point in the cycle, if I remember right.
But now comes word that two more senior officials in John Kerry’s campaign have bailed in protest over Jim Jordan’s firing — Robert Gibbs, Kerry’s spokesman and his deputy finance director.
That takes a lot of the wind out of any potential ‘decisive break’ storyline and makes it look a lot more like a campaign in disarray, if not heading for collapse.
