Clark Hires Lehane

This site has already praised Kerry for dumping Chris Lehane. Thus, I note with dismay that PoliticalWire is reporting that Clark has now hired Lehane.
"The political intrigue plaguing Wesley Clark's Democratic presidential campaign continues to deepen," Washington Whispers reports. Just "minutes after" Clark's campaign manager Donnie Fowler was pushed out, ex-John Kerry and Al Gore spokesman Chris Lehane showed up. "He's the able partner to Clark PR adviser Mark Fabiani. Lehane's just the latest of a wave of Washingtonians and Clintonistas to lend a hand to the Clark effort."
What a shame.

All righty then; Clark loses half his 'Judgment' points in my book.

Hey General? Bad, bad move. Lehane isn't known as 'The Squanderer' for nothing.

I agree. But most voters don't know and don't care about the campaign staffers. We'll have to see how things play out. It would be nice if we could publicize the viewpoint eloquently expressed by Dan Conley in this DeanBlog post.
