"“I don’t think he would have made that kind of mistake in the first term,” one former administration official said on Tuesday.“Sometimes it feels like there’s a void over there. There are some new, extraordinary folks over there, but it definitely leaves something to be desired.”
Former Obama aides and other political observers say that, while the White House is chock full of talent, the campaign-type mentality of first-term aides who sought to win every messaging cycle is missing.
“Not to say there aren’t still good people in the White House, but the people the president most relied on in those areas have left,” New York Magazine’s John Heilemann said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
