Samantha Power Returns To Work With The Monster

I’ve previously noted that the appointment of Cass Sunstein to head the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, beyond his somewhat libertarian views on regulation, was potentially beneficial as this would bring his wife  Samantha Power to Washington–just in case Obama needed any reminder that Hillary Clinton is a monster. Obama is reportedly going to appoint Power to be senior director for multilateral affairs at the National Security Council.

The appointment of Power also restores the  Austan-Power influence on the Obama administration which had previously been present during his campaign. As James Joyner suggests, this appointment is also consistent with speculation that foreign policy will be run from the White House as opposed to the Clinton State Department.
