A just published report indicates Bill Daley has made it clear he intends to leave the Obama White House soon after the 2012 election.
White House Insider reports have indicated Daley was in a prolonged power-play against senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett. The fact Daley made his intent known in an over-the-weekend interview to NBC Chicago affiliate WMAQ-TV prior to any official White House announcement would appear to give further evidence of such a rift. Daley is the second Obama White House Chief of Staff to leave his position since Obama took the oath of office less than three years ago. Both he and his predecessor, Rahm Emanuel, have strong ties to the former Clinton administration.
“No…what I will say is that those are two of the three tactics we are engaging in against Barack Obama’s re-election – continuing to push Eric Holder out of the DOJ, securing a primary challenger, and the other thing…it relates to a staffing issue. The loss of a critical member of the Obama staff. A resignation that will further the growing perception that the Obama White House is a place of internal disarray– which it absolutely is. And this event will also be a signal to those in the Democratic Party that Barack Obama’s re-election is not in their best future interests. It is time we cut our losses and begin the rebuilding process sooner rather than later. And I’m not just talking about the Democratic Party – I’m talking about the country. All of us. All of us need to correct this mistake, and that’s what the election of Barack Obama was. At its core, that’s what it really was – a huge mistake.”
