Obama practices debate prep with old faces


President Obama is bringing back some characters from the past to help with his debate practice, according to The Hill. For now he's prepping at the Democratic National Committee in Washington, D.C:

The most recent session took place last Friday, and included other advisers who helped guide Obama through his 2008 debates: White House senior adviser David Plouffe and White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer. Dunn, Obama’s former communications adviser, is helping the campaign down the stretch and the debates have become “part of her portfolio,” a source says. ...

“I think Obama comes into this with a lot less pressure than Romney,” said one former White House aide. “Romney is approaching the point where the only play he can make is a Hail Mary. He has to do something really remarkable in the debate to make up for the fact that he has been unremarkable since the convention.”

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) is posing as Mitt Romney for Obama's practice.
