Because we Wall Street ties Daly was seen by many as a moderate Democrat who could improve White House connections with the business community.
She -- -- White House correspond Ed Henry joins us now so.
His replacement Jack blue wolf what can we expect from him.
And what's interesting because you mentioned bill -- having some ties to Wall -- the president made a big deal about that a year ago this week in fact when bill -- was -- White House chief of staff that he -- somebody knew how to create jobs could work with Republicans -- on business issues there was a great outreach -- -- bill -- in this White House once he came -- a year -- to the US chamber of commerce and other business groups for example president didn't talk about that yesterday because Jack -- -- -- as a bit more liberal than bill -- he's -- the president white house budget -- but he also used to work up on Capitol -- years ago and the president -- that yesterday -- -- -- Ever since he began his career in public service -- top aide to speaker Tip O'Neill.

Four chiefs of staff here we should be -- stated Pete Rouse was only on the job as as that in turn chief of staff.
For a couple months after Rahm Emanuel left but nonetheless was was in that job so he's had at least three or four if you include Rahm Emanuel Pete -- Bill Daly and now Jack -- that's a lot of -- even in a back breaking job job.
