American political operative who worked on the Dukakis campaign before becoming executive director of the Democratic Governor's Association. Of Irish background, Gearan is kindly, offbeat and well-liked by all of his staff, known for his loyalty. He has a great sense of humor, of the ridiculous at the same time that he appears the epitome of button-down propriety.
When he was 12, Mark's dad died, leaving him devastated. He became senior class president, debate champ and organist and the winner of a scholarship to Harvard, from where he graduated cum laude in 1978.
As a political operative, he became one of governor Bill Clinton's inner circle. He was offered the post of campaign manager but turned down the dream-job to be at the side of his wife for her high-risk pregnancy. With his help, she stayed in bed until term and successfully had a healthy baby girl, Madeleine. Gearan returned to White House employment as Deputy Director of the administration on the transition team.
