Sunday night at the White House

in Uncategorized by

The New York Times reports a tight circle of advisers gather on Sunday nights at the White House for a confidential briefing on President Obama’s re-election.

“The gathering often takes place after Mr. Obama’s regular Sunday round of golf, and while the atmosphere is casual, the agenda is anything but: keeping the president immersed in what it will take to win a second term. He receives an update on how his operation is expanding in battleground states, he watches previews of television ads and he studies a presentation on his various paths to victory.”

“The cast of top advisers — a group limited to 10 in hopes of streamlining the meetings — offers a revealing look at the pecking order of the hierarchy in the Obama campaign.”
