My friend and former New America Foundation colleague Karen Kornbluh, who was principal author of the Democratic Party Platform and who has served as Policy Director in Senator Barack Obama’s Senate office, just had a great profile/Q&A appear on CNN.
Karen is a great thinker, out of the box, and Obama’s team (the ones who play it safe) would be wise to learn from her and her big ideas approach to life.
On other fronts, I’m at Washington Dulles Airport about to fly to Munich, and then Erfurt, Germany. Next week I’m in Madrid and Barcelona. I was supposed to be in Rome with friends Michael Lind, Ivo Daalder, and G. John Ikenberry for a big U.S. foreign policy conference there — but there are just not enough days.
More when I land.
