Heather Podesta is one of those lobbyists that has glommed on to my Government and yours like a tick sucking blood from a wounded animal. She has more power than most elected officials and is part of "the bubble" that is DC. This Washington Post profile is very revealing.

And so it goes, in Heather's World. On this particular muggy night in Central Park, she's electrically caffeinated after taking the red-eye from Las Vegas the night before (Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's energy summit) and she'll be turning around and flying west again in a couple of days (Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's donor shindig in Napa wine country). It may be summer recess, but this is not a time to rest. This is a time to go full-bore. This is a time like nothing we've seen for a long, long time.
