Kevin Cherry notices this item on The Note today: “Yesterday morning, top political aides to at least several candidates who are thought to be leading contenders were contacted by a member of Jim Johnson’s vice presidential search team and asked to provide detailed contact information for their principles, as well as their schedules over the next 10 days.”
Democrats need contact information for their principles? I guess they do.
But how about this possibility. The Note meant to write “top political aids . . . were contacted . . . and asked to provide detailed contact information for their principals,” meaning their bosses. As in the Principals’ Committee of the National Security Council where the top folks from each agency meet, as opposed to the Deputies’ Committee where the number two people meet.
