With this stunning appointment the Obama campaign, in one stroke of the pen, has resurrected her career. Big time. David Axelrod and Barack Obama would also have fairly strong views about the attitudes of others involved in her original sidelining and an appreciation of the events involved. They obviously respect her professional record and value greatly her eight years of White House experience. As will her future boss, Obama’s new VP. In the meantime Ms Doyle will be more than capable of managing the affairs of Obama’s running mate during the general election campaign.
