But the schedule was accelerated, and in recent weeks White House staff had been increasingly critical of General Jones for statements that he apparently made to Bob Woodward, the author of “Obama’s Wars,” an account of the internal decision making on policy Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Mr. Donilon began as young political operative for President Jimmy Carter and later was chief of staff for Secretary of State Warren Christopher in the Clinton administration.

Still, First Lady Michelle Obama sent out a plaintive if blunt e-mail appeal the other day — for her husband’s campaign outfit.

And now Michelle Obama’s mother’s son-in-law has followed suit with a money plea — again, for his own campaign outfit.

“I need you in the game,” he cries.

Then the pitch: The president would like a measly little $3 donation, more if you prefer.

Thanks to an unidentified “fellow grass-roots supporter,” the Democrat says, that donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar. That means, in case your calculator has choked on all those digits in the deficit, “your $3 donation will become $6.”

And then the politician who relentlessly pushed healthcare last year ignoring polls saying the economy was America’s overwhelming concern, makes a surprising confession:

“I didn’t run for president because I wanted to do what would make me popular.”

That part, at least, has worked like a charm.

"Mr. Donilon began as young political operative for President Jimmy Carter and later was chief of staff for Secretary of State Warren Christopher in the Clinton administration."

Hardly an encouraging resume....

Well, that bodes well for future success.
