Obama Campaign knew I was a Clinton supporter before I did

From Ryan Lizza’s piece in the commemorative “O” edition of The New Yorker (a.k.a. the 11/17/08 issue):

On October 10, 2007, less than three months before the Iowa caucuses, Axelrod, Grisolano, Benenson, and other members of Obama’s “message team” distilled several weeks’ worth of polling and internal debate into a twelve-page memo that laid out Obama’s strategy for the weeks leading up to the Iowa caucuses…the memo…argued that, in voters’ minds, Clinton “embodies trench warfare vs. Republicans, and is consumed with beating them rather than unifying the country…” (my emphases)

Yep, sounds about right.

Good times.
