From Digital Journal:
Former White House chief of staff and chair of President Obama’s transition team chose a single word to describe politics in the U.S., and it wasn’t a flattering one either.
John Podesta knows a thing or two about being in the inner circles of Washington D.C. He is the CEO of the Center for American Progress, he served as the head of President Obama’s transition team, he was the chief of staff for Bill Clinton and has a history on Capitol Hill that runs deeper than that. So when Podesta speaks about government and politics he has the pedigree to back it up too….
John Podesta is the president and CEO of the Center for American Progress. He is also the a visiting law professor at Georgetown University Law Center. He got his undergraduate degree from Knox College and his law degree from Georgetown.
