Meanwhile, flying under the radar, is the appointment of Tina Tchen, another Chicagoan, as Michelle Obama’s chief-of-staff. Tchen is a hard leftist.
An acquaintance of hers told me (with a bit of exaggeration, I assume) that Tchen makes Dennis Kucinich look like a right-wing extremist.
According to sources, when Tchen practiced law as a partner at a big Chicago firm [Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom], she was the scourge of more than one associate unfortunate enough to have made his or her conservative views known.
Remember, says Bill of PowerLine Blog, “hard leftists” still “prowl” the White House, even if Bill Daley does not fit the description.
