Wanted: Campaign Stories, Thoughts and Ethical Dilemmas

This Saturday, I will be part of a panel discussion at American University on the topic of ethics in campaigns.  

Obviously, I am anticipating questions such as: "Is negative campaigning ethical?" and "where do you draw the line between hardball politics and being unethical."

The truth is, this is a very important subject to teach — especially in a business where there is no prize awarded for "2nd place."  I wish more young political operatives were exposed to these ideas before they are thrown into campaigns.

Please send me your thoughts, ethical dilemmas, and campaign horror stories to  I’d like to read some of the best e-mails during the panel discussion…
