Unless you're a participant of political back room strategy sessions you won't truly know who did what to who and why. Sometimes this gets disclosed in the politician's biography (official or not). But we voters live in blissful ignorance. Until now!
Toronto had a mayoral election recently and the Public Affairs Association of Canada put on a breakfast yesterday where principal campaign managers revealed what they did and why during the ten month campaign.
Reading about what was said at the breakfast here, here and here, made me think of how much political campaigns are like startup companies...but I think startups are more civilized.
