Do Women in Politics Face a Glass Ceiling?

Liz Chadderdon Powell



Is there a glass ceiling for women in the political consulting industry? 

Whenever an article is written about the professional glass ceiling for women, men get jumpy. They defensively point to articles written about women sportscasters interviewing male football players in the locker room, female soldiers fighting along side their male counterparts and wives out earning their husbands. They usually say this with a look on their face clearly saying, “C’mon, what more do you want?” 

There are plenty of examples of women succeeding in traditionally male do

Political Campaign Fundraising

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers

First, the obvious:  running a successful campaign is expensive.  The legitimacy of a candidate is directly proportional to the size of his coffers.  If you are the candidate, out of political necessity, fundraising is and should be your priority at the beginning, middle, and end of your campaign.  And at every stage in between.  

However, as most of us learn from our parents at a very young age, asking for money is not as easy as it sounds.  When designing a fundraising strategy, a candidate must consider 1) who to ask, 2) who should be asking, and 3

Right-Wing Radio Monopoly and the Myth of the Liberal Media

William S. Bike

When it comes to national talk radio, conservatives are king… 
  --Philadelphia Daily News, May 8, 2002*

Conservative political commentators are not just the majority on talk radio--they monopolize it. It's easy to rattle off a list of celebrity conservative radio commentators: Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, G. Gordon Liddy, Neal Boortz, Mike Gallagher, Matt Drudge, Bob Dornan, Michael Reagan, Oliver North, Michael Medved, Bob Grant, Ken Hamblin, Pat Buchanan, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage--and the list goes on.

However, it is virtually impossible to name progre

Tilting the Playing Field: Voter ID & Turnout

Jim Ross

It is one of the great political clichés, the day before an election an analyst says about a race, “it all depends on turn-out.”  That statement is true, but voter turnout is much like Mark Twain said about the weather, everyone complains about turnout but no one does anything about it.  For Gavin Newsom’s mayoral campaign we did something about turnout. 

In December of 2003 while managing Gavin Newsom’s mayoral race we identified the need to effect turn-out in his favor in order to win the election.  San Francisco’s mayoral elections are traditionally close and ver

Overcome your Fears & Become a Great Speaker

Randall P. Whatley

All the great speakers were bad speakers at first. - Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1860

You are already a great speaker. You give great presentations every day.

Think about how often you successfully communicate your ideas to loved ones, co-workers, or acquaintances. You make a simple point. You choose language that they understand and to which they can relate. You answer their objections satisfactorily. You close with them agreeing to do something you want them to do. You just employed the great elements of a successful speech.

Then you are asked to speak to 15 people about a s

Best Practices for your Database System

Benjamin A. Katz
Mark Rackers


While some politicos still cling doggedly to their well-loved clipboards and broken pencils, those items deserve a more appropriate interment in the Museum of Campaigns Past.  Today, you simply must use a database system.  It is the lifeblood of your campaign, the one place (ideally) where you will plan events, track fundraising, catalog volunteers, and manage your budget. 

There are two things you should keep in mind about database systems.  First, you need a good one.  Second, you need to use it right.  A good tool poorly used is no better than no tool at all.  Imagine using your
