William Daley

Sep 17, 2013 — William Daley has long seemed to be most in his comfort zone as the backroom wheeler-dealer, the guy behind the guy who got elected. So in some ways, his decision to quit the Illinois governor's race is no surprise.
Comments |
Jan 9, 2012 — Daley was never a favorite of many key Democratic constituencies. Organized labor weren't fans because of Daley's role as the Clinton administration point person to get NAFTA passed. Daley was also viewed as a big-business Democrat, for many Democrats their party's counterpart a RINO.
Comments |
Jan 9, 2012 — Daley, who became chief of staff one year ago, was replaced by Budget Director Jack Lew. President Obama said Daley did "extraordinary work."
Comments |
Nov 8, 2011 — Just because White House chief of staff Bill Daley will be offloading some of his duties to his predecessor Pete Rouse, that doesn't mean he's been demoted, President Obama's press secretary told journalists Tuesday.
Comments |
Sep 16, 2011 — Obama is a steady-as-you-go kind of leader. He's known for not having wide emotional swings, not getting too up or too down, regardless of what the outside world is doing. Combine that with his tendency to lean on a small inner circle of trusted advisers and a purge seems even more unlikely.
Comments |
Jul 27, 2011 — It could be taken as a sign of just how dysfunctional Washington is in the summer of the mother of all debt-ceiling fights. William Daley, with arguably the strongest business ties of any member of President Obama's inner circle, said the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's head didn't tell him in a phone call that the group was backing Boehner's debt-ceiling proposal.
Comments |
Mar 7, 2011 — While some U.S. policymakers continued to call for strong U.S.-led military action against Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, namely a no-fly zone, Obama officials kept resisting such demands, citing the difficulty.
Comments |
Feb 2, 2011 — Daley, the White House chief of staff, said the U.S. government can't stage manage Egypt's crisis. What it can manage is its relationship with an ally and its own reaction to circumstances.
Comments |
Jan 11, 2011 — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce wants health care law repealed. And it still finds Obama the problem, not solution, despite the naming of the business friendly William Daley as the new White House chief of staff.
Comments |
Jan 6, 2011 — Obama's selection of William Daley puts the president on the right side of CEOs and centrists judging by the reaction from those groups. Liberals disliked the pick, which doesn't hurt the White House's effort to reposition itself.
