As if 8 years of Obama’s failed policies haven’t been enough, Hillary Clinton shows her hand by revealing a White House transition team made up of Obama’s former advisers, confidants and colleagues.
“Transition teams aim to help the president-elect make key decisions during the period between the election and the inauguration, in this case from Nov. 8 to Jan. 20, so the new White House occupant can fill leadership posts quickly,“ reports Reuters.
“The group will be headed by Ken Salazar, a former interior secretary and U.S. senator. He will lead four co-chairs: former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon; former Obama aide Neera Tanden, who now leads the progressive think tank the Center for American Progress; former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm and Maggie Williams, the director of Harvard’s Institute of Politics.
Heather Boushey, the executive director of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, will be the chief economist. Two additional policy advisers from Clinton’s campaign, Ed Meier and Ann O’Leary, will also move full-time to the transition team, the campaign said in a statement.”
CNN reports that, according to the White House, White House chief of staff Denis McDonough called representatives from both campaigns to inform them of what the law offers their campaigns, including workspace organized by the General Services Administration.
