Inside the Beltway


McCaslin, John, The Washington Times (Washington, DC)


UNFAIR ADVANTAGE

The Washington Post's national staff reporter and columnist, Al Kamen, duly noted this week that first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's new White House spokesman is a former colleague at the newspaper.

What he didn't mention, however, is the Post's current connection to Lissa Muscatine. She's married to Brad Graham, one of Mr. Kamen's fellow reporters on the Post's national staff.

Mrs. Muscatine, a former speech writer for Mrs. Clinton, began work Tuesday, replacing Marsha Berry.

Still, Mrs. Clinton continues to boast that she will raise in excess of $25 million in her bid to become the Empire State's next senator.

That doesn't include contributions to the first lady from numerous left-leaning special-interest groups, which pledge to pour millions more into Mrs. Clinton's coffers.

"We must expect that given the massive Clinton fund-raising machine, it's likely Hillary will outraise us," acknowledges Mr. Giuliani's campaign manager, Bruce Teitelbaum.
