Flashback, Sept. 2013: Why Bernie Sanders Opposes U.S. Strike On Syria --

Hillary Clinton's Newest Consultant Was A Major Keystone Lobbyist

The newest hire for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is a longtime strategist who played a key role in her 2008 primary defeat while working for then-Sen. Barack Obama.
He’s also a Washington lobbyist who lobbied the State Department -- led, at the time, by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton -- on behalf of the company seeking to build the controversial Keystone XL pipeline.
Clinton's new consultant, Jeff Berman, has followed, in many respects, a well-worn path for those in Washington D.C.

When Clinton hired Berman for his current role, it was seen as something of a coup, because he's known as a master of the mechanics of the primary process.

Netroots Nation Phoenix: Hillary Clinton to miss convention of liberal activists, bloggers

Clinton's campaign is citing a scheduling conflict for her absence, saying the Democratic front-runner is already scheduled to speak in Iowa and Arkansas that weekend.

About 3,000 activists are planning to attend the convention, which will also feature Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who many liberals had hoped would challenge Clinton in the 2016 Democratic presidential primaries.
