Working at the White House: Legislative Affairs Director Amy Rosenbaum

Meet the President's chief negotiator in Congress, Amy Rosenbaum.

This season on Working, we’re going to the White House. For this episode, we visited the West Wing office of Amy Rosenbaum, President Obama's Director of Legislative Affairs. She shuffles between the White House and Capitol Hill striving to persuade members of Congress to get behind the President's legislative priorities. She discussed her handling of the Iran Deal and when she decides to bring the President himself to the negotiation table. 

In a Slate Plus Extra, Rosenbaum tells us how the time she spent working on Capitol Hill earlier in her life led to her work with the Obama administration today.
