Some of you may have noticed that because Big Guy wasn't around Illinois or national politics for very long, he doesn't have many of his own "people" he can appoint to senior White House or federal government positions. That's why there are so many Clinton folks around.
The fact that so many of his former aides are back in power is one reason that former President Bill Clinton has been hanging around. Well, that and that his his wife is an assistant to Secretary of State Richard Holbrooke.
In fact, Bill showed up this morning touting another "Friend of Bill" after reading this article about her planned run for the Senate, and he suggested that even if the campaign failed we should find a position for her in Big O's administration. Rahm agreed, saying that since so many people think we're screwing the American people, we might as well get professionals who know how to do it. I don't think he was being sarcastic.
