USDE: Duncan Media Blitz Sunday And Monday

Tw_082510_mn Our man Arne is doing a slew of media events Sunday and Monday, culminating in a "major announcement" at the NBC Education Nation event on Monday.  

Interesting that he wasn't out there very much last week during all the Oprah, Waiting For Superman, and DC hullabaloo.  I guess he doesn't want to overexpose himself or something, for fear of the media breaking out of its dutiful role of being told what to do and say and being spun.  

Who's that on the far right, by the way?  Sort of looks like the English guy from Inception but I'm guessing that's not right.
