Penn Sorta Not Really Resigns from Clinton Campaign

Fall-out from his work on behalf of the Colombia trade deal Sen. Clinton opposes, Mark Penn is ‘stepping down’ from his role as “chief strategist” but will remain as chief pollster.

Note to self: Write separate post on the craziness of having Mark Penn both run message and polling when his polling is so legendary for cherry picking data to confirm his preferred political strategies and messages.

Note to self, two: Make effort to work in fact that Penn earlier tried to argue that he was never part of the Clinton campaign in the first place.
