The White House said last week that Stephanie Cutter, a longtime Democratic operative, had been named assistant to the President for special projects, including the White House's messaging on healthcare.
Cutter, who spearheaded the push to confirm Justice Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, will lead efforts to coordinate messaging about the health law to the public and other stakeholders. She was the lead spokesperson for Obama's transition team.
The Boston Globe writes:
Administration officials said Cutter's job will be more educational than political. But several Democrats said better messaging on health care is crucial to the party's election hopes this year.
