William Daley? WTF?

Query: how are even moderately liberal Democrats supposed to welcome William Daley, who opposed the Health Care Law and the Consumer Protection Bureau, as White House Chief of Staff?

It's bad enough that we have to suffer the consequences of the hissy fit midterm elections, which will leave a lasting scar on our body politic, but to have to suffer further rightward drift, already apparent, in the Obama Administration, is just too much.

I cling to the hope that the president chose this guy for his administrative chops and doesn't intend to take policy advice from him, but after the sorry history with Rahm Emmanuel, that's a slim hope, I'm afraid.

Here's Howard Fineman's explanation for the pick. I remain skeptical.
