Think Tanks Battle For Candidates' Ears

This notice from the Center on American Progress Action Fund reminds me that the Center, like pretty much every think tank and advocacy outfit in town, is vying for visibility and at least the appearance of influence over the Presidential candidates and their positions. ("Look, candidate X has proposed something like what we told him or her to!")

However, contrary to early impressions (mine, at least), it seems like CAP is not just going to be Hillary's shop. Obama and staff have participated in CAP education events, as well. Which makes sense, given all the Clintonistas and experience they have over there (Cindy Brown, et al). But that means that other folks (Brookings/ Hamilton, CEP, Alliance4Ed, New America, Ed Sector) may have to fight tooth and nail to be in the game. To the extent that there is a game. Or I'm totally wrong.
