Political background

Robert E. Grady, 79, is in the running to become Secretary of Energy or Secretary of Interior in President-elect Donald Trumps administration, according to Politico, making him the latest Harvard affiliate to be linked to Trumps Transition. Grady, partner at Gryphon Investors, San Francisco-base private equity firm, was speechwriter and Adviser to President George HW Bush and served as Associate Director for Office of Management and Budget under Bush's administration. Reports about Gradys ' possible appointment come on heels of news that Harvard lecturer and Dunster House resident dean Carlos E. Diaz Rosillo will join Trumps Transition team as Executive Authority Adviser. Rosillo teaches the popular course Government 1359: Road to White House. Grady, who lived in Quincy House during his time at Harvard, Graduate with a cum laude degree in History. He was really one of the most dynamic, energetic, smart, and popular students in our class. He was also a really good student, which was one of the things that stand out, says John Donley, 79, close friend of Grady at Harvard. He was the only undergraduate I can remember. While at Harvard, Grady was a writer for Crimson, writing mostly about sports. He was also heavily involved in student activism against the apartheid regime in South Africa, according to Donley. Bob is one of the smartest, most capable and charming people I know, and genuinely committed to public service, Jonathan H. Alter, 79, former senior editor of Newsweek who was on Crimson with Grady, wrote in an E-mail. He focused on social justice issues at Harvard, but even then was Republican and he went on to work for a moderate Republican Congresswoman shortly after graduation. Donley, on other hand, say, I couldnt have tell if he was Democrat or Republican in college, but he was intellectually curious about policy. Both Donley and Alter say that if Grady were chosen to head either the Energy or the Interior department, his skills would benefit the Trump administration. Donley cites Gradys ' experience in the Bush administration, where he was instrumental in negotiating Amendments to the bipartisan Clean Air Act. People think politics is polarized now, but it was also polarized then, and he did a good job of building the bridge, said Donley. Hes much more conservative nowadays than I am, but his pragmatism and balanced approach to growth and the environment would make him a good fit for the Trump administration, Alter write.
