A Political Star is Born

By Garance Franke-Ruta
When Barack Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on Tuesday night, he offered a hearty thank you to "our campaign manager, David Plouffe, who never gets any credit."

Well, that's about to change. On Friday, June 13, Plouffe will emerge from the background as the advertised draw at an Obama fundraiser in Washington, D.C., at the Capitol City Brewing Company.

The event: "Meet David Plouffe." The explanation, according to event organizers: "David Plouffe, Senator Obama's campaign manager, will be here for an event on June 13. It should be very interesting to hear from the top staff member on the campaign once all of the states have finished voting!"

Wish I could be there to meet this brilliant man.
Plouffe and Axelrod engineered along with their candidate, obama, one of the great upsets in politics in decades.

Agreed. It comes off as suggesting Obama's going to stop giving any thanks to Plouffe.

You may want to expand the quote in the opening paragraph so people will understand the point better: "Thank you to our campaign manager, David Plouffe, who never gets any credit, but has built the best political organization in the country."

I think you are referring to the "who never gets any credit" line but without including that line, it is a little hard to understand what's written here. As I'm reading the version online, you just say "campaign manager."
