The Profile Primary

I hesistate to post on this because I fear it will canablize a piece I’m thinking of doing, but by the time we finally have the nominees set, I’m predicting that the major candidates will have somewhere in the neighborhood of a 100 words of feature articles for each day they’ve been on earth. The latest examples: the New York Sun’s article on a summer internship Hillary Clinton did at a lefty law firm and Newsweeks’ cover story about Rudy’s upbringing.

Myself, I’m currently working on two stories, one about a crucial little league team defeat John Edwards suffered in 4th grade that taught him hard lessons about resilience and competition and 5,000-word profile of an advertising exec from Duluth who roomed with Mitt Romney at Harvard for a week while his own dorm was under construction.
