THADDEUS DUBOIS HAS BEEN NAMED WHITE HOUSE EXECUTIVE PASTRY CHEF. With only six weeks to go until the presidential election — and not many state dinners planned between now and then — and the Bush family on the road a lot — Dubois either really wants this credential on his resume or Laura Bush has the “confidence thing” mastered.
Here’s an idea for the Kerry Campaign. Call Dubois, who must be preparing to move to Washington — and assure him that he can keep the White House job even if George W. Bush has to move out.
Or maybe Teresa should call. You need to match these ploys with equally gutsy moves.
