Why Reince Priebus as chief of staff is good news
At NYPOST by Ed Morrissey --
Donald Trump won election to the presidency by fighting against the political and media establishment. Now that he has the White House, Trump made it clear that he wants to put the establishment to work for him. Sunday, he picked the man who helped deliver not just his election but also a Republican House and Senate to serve as chief of staff — RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
Trump had frequently attacked Republican leadership in Congress during the presidential campaign, House Speaker Paul Ryan in particular. His supporters tried to challenge Ryan in the primaries to no avail, and Trump himself dismissed Ryan as a “loser” based on the 2012 election results.
