Ari Fleischer: Sports PR ‘Definitely More Relaxing’ Than Politics

fleischer_080529_mn.jpg

Former George W. Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer has stayed busy by moving into the sports PR world after his stint in politics.

Along the way, he’s picked up high profile clients such as NCAA Football’s Bowl Championship Series and former baseball star Mark McGwire during his current steroid use admission process.

Despite the high profile sports clients – it’s definitely easier on him than politics, he said.

“When I left the White House I said I was going to do something more relaxing like dismantling live nuclear weapons…This is definitely more relaxing. The fact is I love them both – I loved the intensity and pressure of the White House, I loved being there, but I love this too,” he told ABC News in a profile published this week.
