Blog by Sumana Harihareswara, Changeset founder
Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2006 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Santos doesn't need Cregg for "institutional memory" in his administration! Lyman has far more political experience, and administrative experience too. Isn't Lyman going to be his freaking chief of staff or something? It is completely fine and not at all a betrayal or duty-shirking for Cregg to go head that charitable foundation. She already knows she'll get more done there.
