Dear Joe letter

Dear Joe letter
: David Weinberger, an adviser to the Dean campaign, bids farewell to Joe Trippi. Dave is characteristically candid:

I am not inside the Dean organization enough to know what Trippi did wrong. I hear the TV ads sucked, and I’m more than a little disturbed that the campaign managed to spend all of the money it raised, but I also saw some things that Trippi did right. Real right.

  • What’s your take on this business with Trippi not drawing a salary but getting 15% of the (plentiful) ad placements?

  • KMK

    Brilliant financial foresight or just dumb luck. I bet a book deal is somewhere in his future.

  • Scott

    Possible conflict of interest. I wonder if Trippi really believed in this campaign or was trying to set himself up as the next Carville.
