Considered one of the premier political strategists in the nation, Hildebrand served as Barack Obama’s deputy national campaign manager during the historic 2008 campaign. When a rift appeared between the LGBT community and Obama last spring, Hildebrand mediated, explaining the position of many in the community. Hildebrand is now at the center of the movement to repeal Prop. 8 in 2010, serving as a senior political advisor.
