Big Allen Move
by

There will be all kinds of tea-leaf reading about the formal annoucement that former RNC Chairman and all arounnd GOP-go-to-guy Ed Gillespie has signed on as the treasurer of Sen. George Allen’s leadership PAC.

One of the lingering questions around town is which camp of prospective ’08 Presidential candidates Gillespie might join. This move doesn’t necessarily answer the question, but it should give conservatives some indication about where the battle lines are going to be drawn in the coming couple of years. And it focuses a national spotlight on Allen in a way that it wasn’t a few weeks ago. It means Allen will be a bigger player and supporter of Republican races around the country.

That Gillespie would commit to the Allen sidegig would seem to indicate that he isn’t going back into the White House in an official capacity. There has been lingering talk over the past few months that he might fill Karl Rove’s or Andy Card’s job should either leave. Anything could happen, but it’s doubtful Gillespie would commit to a big job as a national fundraiser unless he thought his calendar was clearer in the coming months.
