David Plouffe (wiki|twitter) is the reason why Barack Obama is President of the United States. He’s also the top political strategist of our time having steered Obama’s underdog campaign from Iowa to Election Day. All of this he details in his best-selling book, The Audacity to Win.
In addition to building, according to Barack Obama, “the best political campaign … in the history of the United States of America,” Plouffe has also served as the Senior Advisor to the President (2011-13). He is now a contributor to ABC News. He has better things to do than draw giraffes.

Mr. Van jones
Van Jones is a
Communist Czar, civil rights activist, and and advocate for what he calls The Green Collar Economy, which reached #12 on the New York Times Best Seller List. He is the co-founder and President of the think tank Rebuild the Dream, which is dedicated to “fighting for an economy that works for everyone – and in which everyone can work.”
Now, while I usually try to supplement each of these posts with a wild and zany story about how said giraffe I was obtained – I have no recollection of this story. This morning I just happened to come across it while cleaning out my unread inbox from *cough* two years ago. So, what I’ve decided to do instead is contact Mr. Jones for a public comment or see if he has any memory of this.
When it comes, I will post his response here. Until then, enjoy this picture of a tree … and a thing.
