Want to Get Elected? Hire me! (No guarantees implied)

There is a fascinating article in The Atlantic about the political consulting industry.

Bottom lines:
a) no apparent correlation between what the candidate spends and likelihood of election

b) the people who succeed are the ones selling the buttons, mailing lists, guidance, advertising, and insights (valid or not).... but probably not the candidates.

Oh, and: it helps if people want to hear your message.  Just ask Jeb Bush.
