POLITICO: Former Fannie Mae chairman Jim Johnson was dumped from Obama's vice presidential search team, but he's still playing a behind-the-scenes role on the campaign.

(Via NewsAlert).

UPDATE: Don Surber comments: "Here is the architect of the self-destruction of Fannie Mae constructing the Obama presidency."

And Mickey Kaus comments:

Tom Daschle invites John Kerry, Richard Holbrooke, and James Carville to breakfast with former Fannie Mae CEO (and ex-Obama-veep-vetter) Jim Johnson. Hard to see how they can pass that one up. .. Premature Comeback Syndrome: Shouldn't Johnson go have breakfast with John Edwards, wherever he is, is until, say, December?

You'd think. But he's part of the operation.
