Mr. Obama has no intention on being a one-termer. No, sir. He's bigging up? Well, he's stocking up on / with the corporate, heavy weight types. He has bagged one of the heaviest around.
William Daley? Of the Daleys of Chicago?
Yes, but more important than his connections in Chicago are in connections on Wall Street. He has what are called top notch corporate credentials.
He's William Daley of Wall Street, of JP Morgan Chase. He's William Daley with the Chamber of Commerce seal of approval. He's William Daley, the former Commerce Secretary of that old centrist, third way guy, whom we all still respect, Bill Clinton.
The Daily Beast observed that William Daley thought health-care reform was a mistake, thought the Consumer Protection Bureau was a bad idea, and the Daily Beast wonders why Mr. Obama has chosen Mr Daley to be his " new right hand?"
Reports the Huffington Post -- "Chamber of Commerce top dog Tom Donahue echoes the Business Roundtable in releasing this pleased-as-punch statement: 'Billl Daley is a man of stature and extraordinary experience in government, business, trade negotiations, and global affairs. He's an accomplished manager and strong leader. We look forward to working with him to accelerate our recovery, grow the economy, create jobs, and tackle America's global challenges.'"
Enough said. William Daley will call off the Wall Street and big business dogs. The big money boys won't try to oust Mr. Obama at all cost, to replace him with just anybody as long as they aren't an Obama.
Meanwhile, some liberals are fuming. Well, is it better to have some liberals fuming or Wall Street snarling? That is if one wants to hold on to the White House? That's the question Mr. Obama has answered with the selection of Mr. Daley.
