Because what this floundering White House obviously needs is another far-left guttersnipe to help sell ObamaCare. If we didn’t know better by the look of him we’d think he was separated at birth with Ezekiel Emanuel.
John Podesta, a former White House chief of staff under Bill Clinton, will join the Obama White House as a senior counselor to President Barack Obama.
The New York Times first reported the move late Monday, followed soon after by the Associated Press, who cited two people familiar with the move. Those people asked not to be identified because the announcement hadn’t been made official.
Podesta served as Clinton’s fourth and final chief of staff between 1998 and 2001 before founding the Center for American Progress, a Democratic think tank with close ties to the Obama White House, in 2003.
The Center for American Progress, funded by George Soros and which spawned the loathsome hack factory known as Media Matters.
