From The Daily Beast:
Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Obama’s Bodyguard
Meet the Democratic leader who’s blasting Republicans and reaching out to a peeved Congress.
The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee is running late, prepping for an MSNBC interview while she brushes her tangled mass of blonde curls in the bathroom, a top adviser hovering behind her. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, dabbing on blue eye shadow, dismisses a suggestion that she call Newt Gingrich the “godfather of gridlock.” A staffer feeds her fodder against Mitt Romney: “Spent his time laying off people, shipping jobs overseas …” The Florida congresswoman looks bemused: “All in five minutes? No problem,” she says. The talk turns to Ron Paul: “If I have to hit him at all, I’ll hit him by saying he’s unbelievably extreme.” Then she jogs to the basement studio at the party’s Capitol Hill headquarters, slides a mike under her purple dress, and delivers her message.
