Ex-Dole aide named 'Rising Star'

His candidate may have lost, but Brian Nick has won.

The former aide to ex-U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole today was named a "Rising Star" by Politics magazine.

The award goes to people 35 or under "who have already made a significant mark in political consulting or advocacy," the magazine said. It chose 10 Democrats, 10 Republicans and seven nonpartisan activists out of hundreds of nominees.

Nick, a 33-year-old Republican, served as Dole's chief of staff.

He joins a list of past winners that includes David Axelrod, Paul Begala, Donna Brazile, James Carville, Ed Gillespie, Karen Hughes and George Stephanopoulos.

He also joins Raleigh consultant Dee Stewart, who was among last year's winners.

I wonder if Dee is the "anonymous" who just posted this?

And he won because he threw the Dole campaign and its strategists under the bus in the last issue of Politics magazine.

He penned a cowardly critique of the "Godless" ad placing blame on everyone but himself.

And now he wins an award by the same magazine. Go figure.
