Centrist Heroes – Emanuel and Schumer
“Never underestimate the ability of a small, dedicated group of people to change the world. Indeed, nothing else ever has.” Margaret Mead
This is such a relevant quote when referring to Congressman Rahm Emanuel and Senator Charles Schumer who moved the balance of American politics to the vital center.
As the House and Senate Campaign directors they personally converted the thoughts and feelings of millions of people around the globe into action.
They recruited Centrist candidates.
They raised enough money to offset the GOP resources.
They tenaciously managed the candidates, campaigns and messages.
They are the Democrat’s Rove.
The change would not have happened without them.
Now we know whom to keep our eyes on for insights into how the Congress will perform and how to help in 2008 when all the House Seats, one third of the Senators, and the President are up for election.
Which candidates will they recruit, which messages will they craft, how will they court the independent moderate voters?
