Hillary Clinton's Campaign of Political Pros and Passionate Folk

With little competition from other Democratic presidential contenders, Hillary Clinton has assembled a who’s who of power brokers for her just announced campaign.
The vast political network contains an important mix – veteran Clinton allies with intimate knowledge of her strengths and weaknesses, and newcomers from President Obama’s orbit well aware of how he was able to triumph over her in 2008. The core staffers have been mostly working on a volunteer basis. They’ve been running communications, holding strategy meetings, and making core hiring decisions while working out of coffee shops, their homes, and by squeezing into Clinton’s small office in midtown Manhattan. They got an upgrade, now that a lease has been signed in Brooklyn Heights for the Clinton campaign headquarters.
