Daley was a poor hire in these times. A guy ingratiated to business and not to party politics or populist movement.
Daley, 63, says the chief of staff job is the best he has ever held, though there is “nothing I’ve seen here that I didn’t know about politics. Politics is all about relationships, people. A lot of it’s emotional. It’s not rocket science.”
Daley also says the White House is less besieged than it may sometimes appear.
A guy who ushered NAFTA through congress for President Clinton is the wrong guy to hire when the GOP has no interest in even passing bills they have proposed in past congresses, the free trade agreements were all but teed up for the GOP lean house and basically 50/50 senate and the general public really is worried about jobs here over all. Rouse is a guy who seems like you tell him what you want and he tells you the one to nth amounts of ways to get it done.
