The Washington Post says White House chief of staff Bill Daley is working "to repair badly frayed relations between the White House and the Cabinet."
Though we've never heard of the problem before, "both sides were deeply disgruntled. Agency heads privately complained that the White House was a 'fortress' that was unwilling to accept input and that micromanaged their departments. Senior administration advisers rolled their eyes in staff meetings at the mention of certain Cabinet members."
It's interesting that Obama's Cabinet feels that Obama micromanages their departments and doesn't want to accept any input from them.
That's how teachers all around the country feel about him as well regarding their schools and education policy.
Of course the one Cabinet official who Obama DOES listen to - the Secretary of Education Privatization Arne Duncan - is the one I wish he WOULDN'T listen to, since Duncan is a full-steam ahead corporate ed deform guy who never saw a public school he didn't want to turn into a charter school or a unionized teacher he didn't want to fire and replace with a TFA missionary.
