More Chances For Campaign Surrogates Flub It Up Duke It Out

Politico_epaper Politico just did a story about how campaign surrogates often seem to flub things up and get fired from their high-prestige but often unpaid jobs (Meet the seven super surrogates). 

The flubs, if not the firings, have already taken place in education:

Think Carly Fiorina on Meet The Press saying that McCain wanted to fully fund NCLB, or Jason Kamras last week creating some confusion about where Obama stands on test-based performance pay.

There's more education surrogate action to come this week, including Keegan vs. Linda Darling Hammond at NCSL on Wednesday, and Keegan vs. Schnur at New America on Thursday.
