Candidates Begin To Talk Education... But Who's Doing Their Thinking?

While The Ed In '08 folks are concerned there's not enough edutalk in the debates (No Room for ED?), the AFTies report that Sen. Biden and other candidates are talking to teachers (Sen. Biden Talks Education) and Inside Higher Ed rounds up candidates higher ed plans (Higher Ed and 2008).

What I want to know is who is doing the candidates' policy development work? I know one former USDEr who's doing some work on the side for one of the R candidates. And I've reported previously that Cassandra Butts from the Center on American Progress may be doing education and civil rights work for Senator Obama on the side (More Obama CAP Connections). But I'm sure every think tank and at-loose-ends policy analyst in town is trying to get in with the eventual winner (Think Tanks Battle For Candidates' Ears). Anyone know more specifics?
