Podesta Sharpens White House Message

"John Podesta's fingerprints are all over the White House agenda just three weeks into his tenure," The Hill reports.

"The White House has focused on income inequality and executive action since President Obama's new adviser came on at the beginning of the year -- demonstrating a singlemindedness often missing during a rocky 2013."

"Both issues were championed by Podesta as effective ways to score victories over congressional Republicans and motivate the Democratic base ahead of the midterm elections, where the Democratic majority in the Senate is in peril."

Meanwhile, Politico notes the White House "is trying to dial down the partisan rhetoric on immigration -- and it's asking its allies to do the same."
