Got A Question For John Podesta?

During the past three months, Center for American Progress President and CEO John Podesta has taken a leave of absence from his position here to serve as co-chair of Barack Obama’s transition team.

Outside observers have described the Obama transition as “among the smoothest in history,” “mostly error-free,” and “almost seamless.” President Obama recently told the Washington Post, “He doesn’t like to get credit, but John Podesta deserves credit here in terms of having helped structure our transition in an outstanding way.”

Now that the transition is over, John is assuming his prior duties here at CAP.

Do you have questions about how the transition was run? Some of Obama’s early moves? The future direction of the administration? Ask John directly. He would like to hear from you and respond to your thoughts.


So here’s how it will work: over the next few hours, please submit your questions in the comments section below. We will take questions from there only. Even if you don’t have a question to ask, please consider voting for other submitted questions by pressing the green “recommend” button (an option available to registered commenters when logged-in).

Later this afternoon, I’ll sit down with John and pepper him with as many of your questions as we have time for (and questions from our commenters only). We’ll video-record the interview and post it on ThinkProgress tomorrow.
