KEYWORDS: BIPARTISANSHIP

“The question on some people’s minds lately is this: Who will be advising Washington when the advisers are all in New Orleans? They’ll be heading there for the Bipartisan Policy Center — the brainchild of former Senate Majority Leaders Howard Baker, Tom Daschle, Bob Dole and George Mitchell — which is hosting its Political Summit on Nov. 9 and 10. The organization — which is exactly what it sounds like — boasts a lineup of A-list names of punditry: James Carville, Tad Devine, Stan Greenberg, Larry Grisolano, Mandy Grunwald, Joe Lockhart, Hilary Rosen and Joe Trippi. And those are just the D’s.

“The R’s are pretty good, too: Mary Matalin, Dan Bartlett, Charlie Black, Alex Castellanos, Steve Schmidt, Mark McKinnon and David Winston.
