White House Chief of Staff Huma Abedin gushes that Hillary Clinton is "incredibly supportive," "the best boss, ever"
WASHINGTON D.C. --Days after President Hillary Rodham Clinton's White House beat out Google for the number one spot on Forbes' list of the "10 Best Places to Work in 2017," senior officials are opening up about the joys of working for America's first woman president in the most diverse, experienced and competent administration of all time.
In a gushing, heartfelt, and lengthy interview, White House Chief of Staff Huma Abedin told the The Washington Post that Clinton's management style is, "extremely thoughtful, empathetic, intensely intellectual and deliberative," calling her "the best boss, ever."
"She really stands behind her staff, no matter what. She's incredibly supportive and deeply loyal," Abedin said, noting that unlike previous Presidents, when things go wrong, Clinton always takes responsibility rather than shifting blame to senior aides or cabinet members.
There's been no turnover in the White House staff since January, when Clinton was sworn in after defeating failed GOP candidate Donald Trump by 3 million votes. While there are no job openings at this time, there's lots of demand: Abedin confirmed to the Post that the White House is "inundated with thousands of applications from insanely qualified people every day. We'd love to hire Jon Lovett, for instance - he's wonderful. Sadly, there's just no vacant position right now."
In interviews with other cabinet members including Treasury Secretary Elizabeth Warren, Secretary of Health and Human Services Neera Tanden, Clinton's head speechwriter Shonda Rhimes, and Education Secretary Bill Nye, FBI Director Sally Yates, Attorney General Preet Bharara, and White House Press Secretary Leslie Jones, senior White House officials describe Clinton as "incredibly warm," "charming," "nurturing," "blessed with a wonderful, constant temperament," "mature," "extremely knowledgeable," "detail-oriented," "easy-going," "inspiring," and "of the highest moral character."
"It's a pleasure working for someone who's so committed to her staff and to the country. Every day, I wake up so happy I get to work with a great President like her," Warren said.
