Washington (CNN) - John Podesta, president of the Center for American Progress, can describe the state of Washington politics with a single word. And it's not a nice one.
Asked in an interview with the Financial Times to comment on "the health of American political system," Podesta responded: "Sucks."
Podesta made the remark with a chuckle, but the man who chaired President Obama's transition team expressed deep concern about the White House's ability to pass big ticket items in the current political climate.

The list, ping
They want a dictator
I guess he prefers a Bolshevik style system...
I have been saying this same thing for a while now.
He should know. He’s been there for the suckiest part yet.
Sounds like he’d love Stalin, though.
And I’d like to see him go to where Stalin is right now.
You had sixty seats in the Senate, 41 seat majority in the House and an executive loaded with true believing lefties, John.
Maybe your party sucks.
A liberal complains about politics being obstructionistic when liberals control the executive and both legislative houses.
Weren't your people the ones that were supposed to bring things together, John?
Actually, I don't trust either party. The best I can hope for is division of power and gridlock.
Pity that Constitution thingy gets in your way.
Go screw yourself, Podesta. Worthless leaches like you are how the system got in place and why it thrives.
It’s just amazing how 50% of the American people can support people that say things like this. Are promises of free stuff so important to them that they’re willing to sell their freedom for it?
But our system just saved us from the enormously well-funded inside-assault of the Islamo-Marxist and his coup-meisters!!!
Many generations of planning, billions of dollars of purchased influence, ill-gotten degrees from Columbia and Harvard Law, the hypnosis of half the American voters and all the media except for Fox...
...all for naught!
” Podesta responded: “Sucks.””
I disagree. I think that it did suck, but is getting better by the day.
It's the liberal, leftist, progressive, socialist, commie bastards controlling and abusing the system that suck.
Take another look at this dried-up old marxist's lips, and tell me who sucks the most.
yup, and sell yours for you too whether you like it or not.
This Putz claims like all the Other Communists running the Democrat Party now that Obama didnt Communicate with the People especially Independents. Hey Putz that was the Whole Strategy!!!!! They did not want to repeat Hillaries debacle when the details of her Mess was Let out,the strategy was to Ram this Through before Anyone could look at the details ,Remember they wanted to vote on this Before Congress adjourned in AUGUST! The Members then went home to the Firestorm of the Town Halls where the American People read them the Riot act with DETAILS that were in the Bill ,How did they find out Details,I thought Obumbo was not Communicating,actually that was the time they put a leash on Obumbo because he was OVEREXPOSED,Not cowering in the White House! These Scum are a Pack of Lying weasels, Hey Podesta,take Ickes and the rest of your Scum Buckets and go Back to Moscow
