The scoop from Washington

Bill Daley shrugging off stories

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--White House chief of staff Bill Daley is shrugging off several recent stories raising questions about his tenure and comparing and contrasting his style to Rahm Emanuel--President Obama's former chief of staff, now mayor of Chicago.

A senior administration official told me Daley is telling "friends when he started the job that at best he would have six months before the typical Washington stories started running and he recently joked it looks like he got lucky and got an extra three months."

Daley, tapped in January for the job, on Monday traveled to New York with Obama for the United Nations General Assembly.
