McAuliffe Heads to Harvard

Anita Kumar

First, Terry McAuliffe took his family on vacation to Turkey. Then, he headed to Las Vegas for pal Bill Clinton's birthday bash.

Now we hear that McAuliffe, who lost to Creigh Deeds in the Democratic gubernatorial primary in June, is joining Harvard University's Institute of Politics as a visiting fellow this fall.

Other fellows include former U.S. Senator Norm Coleman (who lost to former comedian Al Franken), former Obama campaign advisor Stephanie Cutter and columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan.

McAuliffe will head to Boston in October where he will participate in classes, meet with student groups and lead discussions on his experiences. We're betting McAuliffe has a few stories to tell.

SO, T-Mac was DNC Chair in 2000, doing his best to throw his ego into that race and God knows how much that hurt Al Gore. (of course, Donna B. was the worst.campaign.manager.ever.)

SO, T-Mac was the Head of Hillary's campaign in 2008. We saw his behavior in all of that...

So, T-Mac threw himself into a Governor's race in 2009. Ego, lies about REAL businesses he ran in Virginia, and a real lack of insight into the rest of Virginia (he knew a lot about Mclean and Great Falls). Worst.Candidate.of.2009.

So, T-Mac is going to Harvard.
Seminar 428: My Way to Nowhere; Prof. T-Mac.
Seminar 520: Egos, Politics, and Me; Prof. T-Mac.
Seminar 900 (advanced seminar): Reinventing Myself, Again; Prof. T-Mac.

That's a pretty cynical jab, Humble. Since when is teaching at Harvard a raw deal? Even compared to his primary loss -- which can be credited to B. Moran's apparent sense of xenophobia -- a teaching gig at Harvard isn't what I'd call "nowhere". And lies about a business? Get your facts straight.
