12. I can only hope that Obama regrets what Rahm did to Howard in Obama's name

I never dared ask him that outright. Our little session was last year, and re-election strategy was the big theme (along with health care, Syria, renewable energy and a LOT of etc.) Howard took his snub stoically at the time, said it was Obama's choice as to whom he was going to listen and whom he was gong to choose for his administration. At least outwardly, Howard took the insult like a trooper. But Obama is no idiot and I think he knows full well that if Howard had not been DNC chair from 2004-2008, that he (Obama) would not now be president. I can only hope he knows what he lost in not picking Howard for HHS during his fight for the ACA. It would have been nice to have an expert in the field at his side while arguing his case.
