Chicago Magazine Dusts Off Bill Daley Profile

The dust has settled a bit on the announcement that Bill Daley will become President Obama's Chief of Staff. Already, Newsweek declares Daley's appointment a good move, saying that bringing in Daley, who's criticized the Obama Adminstration's position on health care, could actually be a boon for Obama. The Washington Post's Greg Sargent, on the other hand, said Daley's appointment could solidify the perception that Obama governed from the left in the eyes of critics.

To get an idea into the mind of the youngest Daley, Chicago Magazine republished on their website Carol Felsenthal's profile of Daley from February 2005. Felsenthal has always been a detailed reporter and turner of a fine narrative,a nd this profile of Daley is no exception.
