The political persuaders

For the last four weeks we have done policy wonk stuff, talking about issues and policy.

But ultimately, all of these issues get decided by people we elect.

And we elect them based on perceptions of who they are. And these perceptions are shaped by consultants.

This week we have two of the best of these with us: Republican Constantin Quenard and Democrat Bob Grossfeld.

My guess is that they agree on almost nothing in the way of issues.

But I’ll bet they are in near total agreement on the efficacy of various tactics, since they are both pros.

But we will see. And it should be fun.
