AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Pete Rouse, Obama’s Interim Chief Of Staff

October 4th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana




Name: Peter Mikami Rouse

Age: 64

Occupation: Interim White House Chief Of Staff (previously Senior Advisor to President Obama)

Known for: Calm, assertive energy. The man who has, as of October 1, signed on as Rahm Emanuel’s interim replacement as the White House Chief of Staff is no stranger to President Obama, members of the Obama administration, the House or Senate. Pete Rouse, a third-generation sansei son of a Japanese American mother, is a 4-decade veteran of Capitol Hill once known as the “101st senator“–working notably for eighteen years as Tom Daschle’s Chief of Staff (before the former U.S. Senate Majority Leader was ejected from his seat in ’04). The quiet, private “pragmatist” is often hailed as the man who gave lift to Obama’s meteoric rise to President, and joined the administration as one of three senior advisors, alongside David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett.

Oh, and Rouse is the kind of man that makes Sarah Palin nuts, which is always a good sign (or at least a sign of intelligence).

Despite his long career and ever-evolving sphere of influence, Rouse is known as a behind-the-scenes guy who is honest and effective. Couldn’t we use a little bit of that in our political environment today?
