According to the New York Times, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who has often been dubbed the Prime Minister, called John Podesta to offer him a White House role.
Podesta is the poster figure for what is wrong with America. In his 73 years, he has never held a private-sector role. His first job after law school, in 1976, was to serve in the Department of Justice. Since then, he has flawlessly moved between Congress, the Executive Branch, and Democratic political campaigns, perfecting Washington connections.
