Mrs. Beane, 32, is a senior policy adviser in Seattle for the United States Education Department. She graduated from Wellesley College. She received a master's degree in government from the University of Texas and a master's in public policy from Harvard. Her father is the director of development at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. Her mother is the reading specialist at the Monroe Elementary School.Hmm. So she and her husband both graduated from the University of Texas. Well, then, they must be familiar with Perry already, even though they now reside in New Hampshire. I wonder when she dropped the last name? According to the New York Times, her name was Bunce. Who knows, maybe she's trying to hide something.
Dr. Beane, 35, is a research associate in nuclear theory at the University of Washington in Seattle. He graduated from Lafayette College and received a doctorate in physics from the University of Texas. His father retired as a partner in J&H Marsh & McLennan, the insurance brokerage firm in New York.
No doubt the media will be sure to follow up on her background, right?
Update: As Jeff Emanuel points out, she hates Perry because he's an Aggie. Heh.
