DNC Hires Bill Clinton Hand To Be Pol. Director

More

President Obama's Democratic National Committee is beginning to fill in its senior staff roster.  Among the top hires: Clyde Williams, a former senior adviser to the Clinton Foundation and before that, a deputy chief of staff in the Department of Agriculture.  Williams will be political director. His name will not be familiar to the larger Obama political world. He has a background in grassroots organizing, particularly with African Americans, as he was, in a way, former President Clinton's liaison to Harlem when the prez moved his office there after leaving office.  The DNC is close to announcing its communications director; today, several communication staffers hired during the Dean regime will turn in their keys, including the DNC's internet and research director.
