Nelson v Myers?

Chris Cillizza says that Bush/Cheney '04 political director Terry Nelson will be John McCain's campaign manager, while Hotline says that Beth Myers will be Romney's.

Nelson is directly connected to the 2002 New Hampshire phone-jamming scandal and the Tom DeLay money-laundering scandal, so draw your own conclusions about McCain's standards. More relevant, perhaps, for Romney, Nelson is known as a champion of opposition-research-based ad campaigns -- most notably, this year's Harold Ford "call me" ad. (What's the equivalent for a Mormon opponent? I guess we'll find out.)

Myers, of course, has been Romney's top dog for a long time, and was long ago shifted from running the administration to running his Leadership PAC -- a much more important job on Romney's organizational chart.
