Pete Rouse, the interim Chief of Staff to President Obama after Rahm went placed his bid for Chicago Mayor, has lead the Democrats through a historic 'lame duck' session as no one else could. Regardless of the Right Wing rhetoric stating the President is 'out of touch' with the business sector, that is the furthest thing from the truth. There have been TOO MANY Wall Streeters within this administration and I am glad they are leaving. I don't care if Daley was a Clinton Administration favorite. He is working for Morgan now and has been 'on the inside' to one of the most corrupt banking scandals in history. He knew what was going in internally when Paulson was pulling all the strings and I believe Daley is the worst choice President Obama could ever make. It will hurt him politically and eveyrone knows it.
Daley should probably be investigated along with every other 'insider' during the banking scandal of 2008 before they even let in the front door of the White House.
Has everyone completely lost their sense of what happened?
Sperling. Just wha the nation needs, another Geither. President Obama can do better than this. I would think there are many African Americans as equally if not better qualified that would love to bring a fresh outlook to the economic challenge this White House faces.
