Glenn W Smith

Glenn W. Smith has spent the past 30 years in journalism and politics, where he's made a name for himself as a writer, campaign manager, activist, think-tank analyst and, as Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas says, a "legendary political consultant and all-around good guy." 

Smith led Ann Richards' successful 1990 campaign for governor of Texas. He worked for former Texas Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby and US Sen. Lloyd Bentsen. Earlier, Smith was a political reporter for the Houston Chronicle and the Houston Post. He's coordinated national campaigns for groups such as MoveOn.org.
