Dana Perino Joins Mark Penn

Here’s your cynical version of post-partisanship: Dana Perino, President Bush’s last press secretary, will be joining the public-relations firm Burson-Marsteller, whose CEO is Mark Penn, a former adviser to President Clinton and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign’s chief strategist. "She's been through some incredibly difficult experiences at some of the highest levels, and comes out of that an extremely skilled practitioner," Penn told The Wall Street Journal. Perino will be “chief issues counselor” and “likely will focus on communications strategies for clients in the looming Washington policy debates over issues such as energy, climate change and health care. She may also develop business among newer defense and technology firms.”
