Mark Penn Gone

"Mark Penn Gone"

At least kinda sorta. Here’s Maggie Williams’ statement:

After the events of the last few days, Mark Penn has asked to give up his role as Chief Strategist of the Clinton Campaign; Mark, and Penn, Schoen and Berland Associates, Inc. will continue to provide polling and advice to the campaign.

Geoff Garin and Howard Wolfson will coordinate the campaign’s strategic message team going forward.

What exactly the demotion from Chief Strategist to guy who provides polling and advice means I couldn’t quite say, but good semi-riddance.

UPDATE: Perhaps with reduced campaign responsibilities (and no more Colombia work) Penn will have more time for sniper training.
