    William Daley good choice as Obama's chief of staff?

    Having been a board member of Fannie Mae, a US Secretary of Commerce, and the Midwest Chairmen of JPMorgan Chase, doesn't he have to be considered one of the architects of our recent financial disaster?  Kind of like hiring an arsonist to be a fireman?

    I suppose good or bad choices by Presidents will remain to be seen, or maybe will be one for the history writers to decide.

    He must have been somewhat near the flame when the burning started.  Certainly top level management in Chase were aware that the financial situation was dire in terms of the banking and finance industry.  At the same time, I think this move is more one that is convenient for Obama than anything else. It gives him an insider who is a declared Republican operating as an "administrative manager" but capable of being a close advisor on particular issues.  It may allow Obama to keep his finger in the winds of conservatism especially in the conservative majority of the House.  As for his colorful past, Obama is quite comfortable in being surrounded by people of checkered past and political ideaology.  Most of his friends are vowed socialists or communists, so a republican will not be any stretch at all for him.

    Rumor has it Daley is authoritarian and abrasive, alienating the congresscritters the good will of whom the white house needs to get anything done. I think he was chosen to keep a tight rein on the staff during the reelection campaign, though, so maybe the tradeoff is worth it to BO.
