The invisible man takes over the second most powerful job in Washington | David Rothkopf

From the epithet-laden Chicago street pol to a mild mannered insider.  What is the best leadership style for a chief of staff?  Rothkopf makes the case that situational leadership works, but even more so–President Obama would be well-served by someone who can add the unique challenges/opportunities facing the current commander in chief:

It’s for this reason that I think the president might be better off with a strong, independent minded James Baker-style chief of staff who will be his best advocate behind the scenes but also can challenge the president and bring out the best in him behind closed doors. If it turns out that Rouse can be that man, so be it, but many among even his legions of supporters wonder whether he is the guy to push, prod and challenge Obama to the next level.
