After Susan McCue helped her boss, Sen. Harry Reid, win back the Senate for Democrats, multimillion dollar offers from K Street flooded in. McCue went on a different track; for the past eight months, she's been the president of the ONE Campaign, which has played a measurable role in convincing the presidential candidates to talk seriously and think seriously about global poverty and public health.

This morning, duty calls again: McCue will announce that, come December, she's going to step down as president and become a ONE consultant so she can more closely help Sen. Reid, a task that, as president of a bipartisan non-profit, was often more difficult. McCue will remain heavily involved with ONE but will spend more time helping Reid's war room and guiding his strategic communications strategy.
