From Howie Kurtz:
Matthew Dowd started out as a Democratic operative, then helped engineer George W. Bush’s winning White House campaigns before growing disenchanted and publicly breaking with the president. Now he’s reinventing himself once again.
ABC News will announce today that Dowd has been tapped as an on-air contributor and blogger, the latest member of the Bush team to embed himself in the media while their ex-boss still runs the country.
For ABC News, the move is reminiscent of the hiring of George Stephanopoulos, who was brought on as a liberal commentator after leaving the Clinton White House and is now chief Washington correspondent, host of “This Week” and a substitute anchor on “World News.”
