St. Olaf's Political Awareness Committee will welcome Stephanie Cutter to campus October 23 to discuss Today's Political and Policy Debates: What's Really Going on Behind the Sound Bites and Public Perception.

Cutter was named one of the Top 50 Most Powerful People in Washington by GQ magazine and today serves as CNN political commentator and co-host of Crossfire.

She served as deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama’s 2012 reelection campaign, and as chair of the board for the President’s Inaugural Committee.

Before joining the campaign, Cutter was a deputy senior advisor to Obama, overseeing message strategy and issue development. From January to May 2009, she served as counselor to the Secretary of the Department of Treasury. She also served as Michelle Obama's chief of staff on the 2008 Obama for America campaign.

From January 2005 to March 2006, Cutter was a senior advisor to then Minority Leader Harry Reid and Democratic Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

In fall of 2003, the John Kerry for President Campaign brought in Cutter to serve as a national spokesperson and to develop a communications plan to reposition Kerry for victory. She assumed the position of the communications director for the Kerry-Edwards 2004 presidential campaign.

Previously, Cutter was a senior communications advisor to Senator Edward M. Kennedy. From 1994-2001, Cutter held various positions in the Clinton Administration, including White House deputy communications director and deputy assistant to the president.
