Man behind

Hillary Clinton is a walking, talking focus-group-censored centrist.

The man behind this facade is her chief political strategist, Mark Penn.

During Bill Clinton’s presidency, The Washington Post called him “the most powerful man in Washington you’ve never heard of.”

Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, who is far from objective yet strikingly resonate, called Penn the Democratic version of Karl Rove.

Hillary is positioned as a centrist, yet she isn’t a populist.

In college, she was a Goldwater Republican who didn’t believe change could come from the outside.

Her special-interest insider is Penn. He has consulted for Texaco, Microsoft and Eli Lilly, among other corporations. Through his public relations firm, Burson-Marsteller, he has fought labor unions, human rights, consumer organizations and the environment.  

His polling firm, Penn, Schoen and Berland, is only concerned in gaining in Repulican demographics such as “Office Park Dads” and the “F-U Boys.”  

His consulting work is supposedly independent from his political work, but do you want your candidate to listen to the ideals and past practices from this chief strategist?
