However, there's also Chris Hughes, who was one of Mark Zuckerberg's original Facebook co-founders (and Harvard roommates) and who's a rising star in the world of political strategy. While he remains a consultant to the massive social network, he stopped working there full time early in 2007 to head up digital-media initiatives for Barack Obama's then-fledgling presidential campaign.
Hughes' current title is entrepreneur-in-residence at General Catalyst Partners, a Cambridge, Mass.-based venture firm. But we wouldn't be surprised if he resurfaced in the Beltway in the not-so-distant future.
