 roadWashington Post profiles Steve Hildebrand, gay former deputy campaign manager for Obama, his career, and his history of depression. White House paints him as mad: "Obama officials — mindful that the Hildebrand Strategies Web site promotes the consultant's connection to the president — see Hildebrand's new phase differently and dismiss his admonishments as the ravings of a sick man. 'You get the good Steve and the bad Steve. When Steve is healthy, he's a world-class operative. And when he's not, things get pretty crazy,' says a White House official, who would only speak about a former colleague anonymously. The official, who acknowledges that Hildebrand has never requested to join the White House, adds that given his behavior, 'it's tough to see a role internally for Steve.'"

In less than three weeks the 2nd Amendment March will take place Washington D.C. on April 19th to be exact, which also happens to land on the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Terrible, thoughtless, possibly inciting, coincidence? Maybe.

April 19th also happens to be the day Patriots’ Day falls on this year (third Monday in April) and according to the March’s website that is the motivation for the date choice."
