barlett.gifDan Bartlett, former Counselor to President Bush, “has joined CBS News as a political analyst,” TVNewser reports. Bartlett is expected to “provide on-air analysis on a variety of political issues, ‘including at the Democratic and Republican National Conventions and beyond.’” Bartlett — dubbed “Danny Boy” or “Dan the Man” by Bush — has spent “virtually his entire career working for Bush.” Last fall, he joined the influential PR firm, Public Strategies Inc. Explaining his departure from the Bush administration, he said, “I’ve had competing families. And, unfortunately, the Bush family has prevailed too many times, and it’s high time for the Bartlett family to prevail.”
