Just an oversight, I'm sure

NY Times - Kerry Enlisting Clinton Aides in Effort to Refocus Campaign. It's the usual blather about the usual suspects saddling up to save Lurch from himself.
Among the better-known former Clinton aides who are expected to play an increasingly prominent role are James Carville, Paul Begala and Stanley Greenberg, campaign aides said.
Mr. Begala, who said he would remain a CNN commentator, said he was delighted with the changes.
Mr. Greenberg, who was Mr. Clinton's pollster in 1992, resigned Tuesday as the pollster for independent Democratic groups that have been running advertisements attacking Mr. Bush so that he would be permitted, under the law, to play a more prominent role in advising Mr. Kerry's campaign.
The Times doesn't tell us about Ole Snakehead's current gig, but Howard Kurtz did last week:
As the cohost of CNN's "Crossfire," Carville is no longer a party hack.
No humor intended apparently.

Anyhow, I'm sure that the Times is going to rush right out with an editorial saying that Carville and Begala should resign their CNN gigs now that they are actively advising a presidential candidate. Surely some Olympian tut-tuts are also in order for Mr. Greenberg violating the spirit, if not the law, of "noncoordination" with 527's. C'mon, Emperor Bill, surprise us!
