President Obama's former defense secretary, Leon Panetta, called for a White House shake-up this morning on CBS:
“I always think it's a good idea to bring new life into the White House," Panetta said in response toa question from the CBS host. "The problem with the White House is, as you mentioned, is isolation, You isolate the president from a broad range of views and I understand this has developed over the years, more concentration of power in the staff of the White House, and as a result, the president doesn’t get exposed to a broad range of views that he needs order to make the decisions."
"So bringing new life in, bringing new views in, would be very helpful to giving the president that greater exposure to a lot of different options that he is going to have to consider if he is going to get things done."
Panetta previously served as White House chief of staff in the Clinton administration.
