Bill Daley, DC is certainly the center of public policy. But there is new evidence suggesting that the position in 2012 re-election bid, Chicago is the undisputed center of the political universe as there are reports that the Obama administration is recovering former Commerce Secretary William Daley as his new Chief of Staff to replace Rahm Emanuel.
Currently, acting chief of staff Pete Rouse is in charge. But Rouse has said it has no real desire to run the White House or his cabinet, looking to play a more discreet role in the next two years. And Chief Vice President Joe Biden of staff, Ron Klain, announced that he resigned from his post at the end of the month – after months of speculation that he was in the running to replace Emanuel. Klain going to accept a job offer to become president of Case Holdings, the investment company named after the founder of AOL Steve Case.
Here’s how everything is connected in Chicago: Daley is the brother of Mayor Richard Daley out who leaves office after more than two decades of the Windy City. His younger brother Bill also contributed some $ 50,000 and inaugural celebration of President Barack Obama – another Chicago native policy (although Hawaii is his home country). Some observers wonder what Emanuel may have had to deal with the resumption of Daley, as the race for mayor of Chicago seems to have the former congressman in mind according to recent polls.
This is a consolidation of political power in Chicago with Emanuel eventually become mayor, the head of Obama’s campaign in 2012 being based in Chicago and even former President Bill Clinton to help by agreeing to consolidate the campaign for Emanuel in the coming months before the Democratic Mayoral primary in February.
“The race for mayor of Chicago is certainly not a local race,” said Jackson WVON IS Holiness in the comments Politic365.com. She noted that the redesign of the White House and the convergence of political actors in the Windy City have huge implications for 2012 and beyond.
“This is a national competition that happens in the heart of America.”
But many observers have questioned the appearance of political influence as being centered in the hometown of Mr. Obama and how it will turn to voters. While the campaign headquartering outside the Beltway would be a smart move that suggests a plan to take the administration out of the bubble in Washington, Obama could be the creation of a separate political bubble of Chicago that could affect the collection in 2012.
“One disadvantage is the perception that Obama remains stubbornly comfortable cocoon and only with a small coterie of longtime loyalists with connections to Chicago,” writes Marc Ambinder National Journal.
