Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich published a commentary on the possibility of a nomination and potential to win the election for certain politicians. “Sadly, I knew the difference between winning a nomination and winning a general election,” Estrich said. “A year before, when I took over the campaign, I was already a well-known ‘rules junkie’ in Democratic circles, a veteran of two cycles and three campaigns, not to mention the rules fights at the 1980 convention and the two rules commissions that always followed our defeats.”
