    Outspoken and on-the-move on Capitol Hill, Angela Rye continues to rise in stature on the D.C. political scene. Now a principal at the boutique political consulting firm IMPACT Strategies, Rye is more visible than ever. This summer before the Supreme Court's decision on affirmative action in college admissions, Rye took to MSNBC's The Cycle, where she asked, "How can you have bootstraps to pull yourself up when you have no boots?" The passion behind her rallying cry on affirmative action is not a rare display for Rye, who is now a smart, reasonable and engaging regular on cable news. And you should all tune in.
