CNN Adds Frum and Cardona to 2012 Election Team

CNN continued to beef up its roster of 2012 political contributors with the addition Democratic strategist Maria Cardona and conservative columnist David Frum today.

Cardona currently heads the public affairs practice at Dewey Square Group, where she founded the Latinovations practice that focuses on Latino strategic outreach on national, state and local levels. During the 2008 Democratic primary election, she was senior adviser and spokesperson to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and served on the campaign’s Hispanic outreach team.  A former communications director for the Democratic National Committee, Cardona also served as a spokesperson at the U.S. Departments of Justice and Commerce during the Clinton administration.

David Frum is the editor and founder of the conservative website FrumForum.com. From 2001 to 2002, Frum served as special assistant and speechwriter to President George W. Bush. During the 2008 election season, he served as senior foreign policy advisor to the Rudy Giuliani presidential campaign.  He is a former editor of the Wall Street Journal’s editorial page and six time author.

Cardona and Frum join the CNN’s existing lineup of political contributors which includes John Avlon, Paul Begala, Bill Bennett, Donna Brazile, James Carville, Alex Castellanos, Erick Erickson, Ari Fleischer, David Gergen, Roland Martin, Mary Matalin and Hilary Rosen.

Cameos Galore in “Adjustment Bureau”

Several journos and political media figures make cameo appearances in Matt Damon‘s new movie, “The Adjustment Bureau” in which Damon plays a politician running for a New York Senate seat.

In the film: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and contributors James Carville and Mary Matalin, “The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart, and Bloomberg TV anchor Betty Liu.

New York local news anchors Chuck Scarborough (no relation to Joe) and Daniel Bazile appear in the movie as well, along with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

HuffPost’s Ultimate Media Couples List

HuffPost readers have spoken. And when HuffPost readers speak, the world listens. This time, they have chosen the “Ultimate Media Duo.” (Important to note: unlike most HuffPost lists, this has nothing to do with hotness.)

The title of most ultimate of all ultimate media duos goes to ABC “World News” anchor Diane Sawyer and her husband, director Mike Nichols. In second place, Bloomberg News‘ Washington executive editor Al Hunt and PBS’ “Newshour” anchor Judy Woodruff. And, in third, host of ABC’s “This Week” Christiane Amanpour and Bloomberg‘s Jamie Rubin.

Among the couples not chosen: WaPo‘s Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn, CNN contributors James Carville and Mary Matalin, CNN’s John King and Dana Bash, and Daily Beast‘s Tina Brown and her husband, former Sunday Times (London) editor Sir Harry Evans.

WaPo’s Wise with the Win

Mike Wise

From Fishbowl’s favorite sports junkie: While ex-Postie Tony Kornheiser was yakking about the weekend’s movies with WaPo film critic Ann Hornaday and hyping James Carville‘s upcoming “football picks” this morning,  Post Sports columnist Mike Wise (the flyin’ Hawaiian) was breaking real news over on WJFK-FM…

Wise apparently confirmed that the Redskins’ Rex Grossman would get the start Sunday vs. the Cowboys,  instead of Donovan McNabb, the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback.  Ironically, ESPN floated the Grossman story a couple of days ago but Wise won the day with confirmation.

They are two political animals known for getting into tangles. On Aug. 21, conservative pundit Ann Coulter and Democratic pundit James Carville will go toe to toe at the Atlantic City Hilton for a special Speakers Series. They are being billed as the “Conservative Queen” and the “Rajin’ Cajun”.

And it’s not expected to be pretty.

The Carville/Coulter appearance at the Hilton is part of the hotel’s Speaker Series which has seen the likes of high-profile, political heavyweights including former President Bill Clinton, FNC’s Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck.

CNN contributor James Carville, Fox News’ Chris Wallace and Bloomberg’s Al Hunt were also spotted in the sold-out crowd — Carville actually has seats in the row behind Russert’s.
