The White House power base is too narrow, officials say. “If there’s still only five, 10 people making decisions, then we haven’t learned our lesson from Tuesday,” says an aide who believes the problem starts with Obama’s decision to delegate huge authority to senior advisers Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod.
