Not everyone I’m interviewing is here in DC. At times, I’ve taken trips to meet with former staff. In this case, I hopped the Amtrak to New York, then the subway to Brooklyn. And when you’re interviewing someone with children, discussions about Congress come second as you take a break to read a book.
Interview, Democratic Press Secretary:
There’s a spectrum of staffers. On one end, you have people who blindly love who they work for. And then, on the other end, you have people who, you know, have no loyalty to their bosses. And both are very putrid. But I think the ones who are the most annoying have nothing but hero worship for their bosses.
And I’ve seen that a couple times with staff at the Senate Press Secretaries Association.
