3 More Questions for 2009

Lieberman, Jordan
June 2009
Politics (Campaigns & Elections);Jun2009, Vol. 30 Issue 6, p10
The author reflects on three main issues facing U.S. political consultants in 2009. He questions whether ban on scientists from helping other countries build nuclear weapons apply to political consultants from exporting their knowledge that would make U.S. enemies elected. He also asks whether political consultants embody the characteristics of lawyer Mark Geragos or the baseball team Washington Nationals' mascot Screech. He advises candidates to hire consultants despite the emergence of technologies that can be used in campaigns.
