John Podesta

“President Obama has been very productive in putting the building blocks in place for success for the American economy. His accomplishments are being challenged in the political campaign as we speak.”

Chair of the Center for American Progress, John David Podesta served as chief of staff in the Clinton White House and oversaw the transition between the Bush and Obama administrations. He now provides research and policy advice concerning issues of particular interest to Democrats, including health care, the economy, and education.
